Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham was on a ten-mile Boy Scout hike with his son in Texas when he was arrested and accused of “rudely displaying” his firearm. Knowing there are wild boars, coyotes, and cougars in the area, he had an AR-15 rifle slung over his shoulder and was also carrying a .45 caliber pistol, according to Fox News’ Todd Starnes.
An avid “Constitutionalist” and prominent military blogger, Grisham has served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan throughout his 18 years in the military. He was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor for his service. But on the day he was arrested in mid-March, Grisham says he was treated like a “street thug
He described how it all happened:
At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later. He asked us what we were doing and I explained that we were hiking for my son’s merit badge. He then asked me what I’m doing with the rifle, to which I responded in a calm manner, “Does it matter, officer? Am I breaking the law?”
At that point, the officer grabbed my rifle without warning or indication. He didn’t ask for my rifle and he didn’t suggest he would take it from me. He simply grabbed it. This startled me and I instantly pulled back — the rifle was attached to me — and I asked what he thought he was doing because he’s not taking my rifle. He then pulled his service pistol on me and told me to take my hands off the weapon and move to his car, which I complied with. He then slammed me into the hood of his car and I remembered I had a camera on me (one of the requirements of the hiking merit badge is to document your hikes)…Up to this point, I am not told why I am being stopped, why he tried to disarm me, or even that I’m under arrest.
Here is the clip taken from Grisham’s camera:
The most beautiful voice for the most beautiful world.
I have only recently come to know of Jackie Evancho, the youngest opera singer in history. But her talent, though “stunning and amazing,” is not what grabs my heart when I watch this young lady and her family. You will surely see what I mean as you view this special video production.
In this generation, it is miraculous that this youth could be so heart-warming and spiritual–a real tribute to her parents. Oh, some shall say, “she is still worldly,” but I say, “praise YAHWEH for her sweet spirit and humility!” God looks on the heart, and man looks on the outward appearance. I pray that I will meet Jackie Evancho in Heaven, and with her, sing praises unto the Most High along with the angels.
This documentary reveals the dangers of the public school system in America and advocates home-schooling as the best alternative for educating our children.
