In the top of the 7th inning, game 6 of the World Series a soldier is singing God Bless America.
There will be a 7th game if the Royals maintain their lead.
Our city is alive and well high on the energy being produced out at Kauffman Stadium.
Win or lose you gotta’ admit both teams have thrilled their fans making the contest a most entertaining event, winning 3 games each.
When evenly matched with an opponent you gain their respect involved in fierce competition.
Time will be taken off this evening from emergency dental care KC to watch the series.
My motto, “Go KC Royals!”
“Zulu” an old movie filmed around the early seventies found the British Empire under attack from Zulu warriors.
The Zulu had destroyed a British force out in the open and were on their way to destroy a smaller group of British soldiers encamped at a mission.
Soldiers fortified the perimeter of the mission preparing for battle.
Walls were formed with oxen drawn wagons turned on their side.
Harvested grain placed in burlap bags was removed from storage and stacked high enough to serve as protection for soldiers.
The senior officer was an engineer on assignment near the mission building a bridge across a small river.
Battle formations decimated charging Zulu who were no strangers to difficult opponents.
Zulu were known as tough, fierce competitors.
At the end of the movie the Zulu gave a salute to the valiant warriors who were also fierce competitors under fire in the heat of battle.
Michael Cain, one of the officers, thought the Zulu had returned after leaving the area to finish off the remaining British soldiers.
To their surprise it was explained that the Zulu were singing praises of the size of the fight in the British soldiers.
The ultimate testimony in battle is one of mutual respect for an opponent who matches your wit and fortitude.
God Bless America is a song that has gotten us through the most difficult of circumstances.
Preparation for war in times of peace is no mystery to combatants that march to the cadence of a battle cry.
Respect the enemy you encounter in battle and be at peace with the words to God Bless America.
