How do you feel today?    I feel ...

By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder -- infinitely prouder -- to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, Our Father Who Art in Heaven.

A bit about Douglas Macarthur ...

Douglas MacArthur (January 26, 1880 April 5, 1964) was an American military leader who served in World War II. He helped rebuild Japan after the war and played a key role in limiting the Communist takeover of Korea with his daring Inchon landing. A controversial figure, he was dismissed by President Truman but returned to the largest tickertape parade ever.
