    Subject: Tiger Woods comments/speech given at the inauguration

    Well now. Tiger Woods was invited to speak at the inauguration. But I
    don't think he delivered the message his inviters had expected!


    Subject: Tiger Woods comments/speech given at the inauguration
    Tiger Woods spoke Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington during "We
    Are One," an inauguration celebration for President-elect Barack Obama.
    Below is the text of his speech, entitled "You'll Never Walk Alone," as
    posted on his Web site:
    "I grew up in a military family - and my role models in life were my Mom and
    Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods. My dad was a Special Forces operator and many
    nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of the
    service, and every rank. In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw first hand
    the dedication and commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk
    of life. From every part of our country. Time and again, across generations,
    they have defended our safety in the dark of night and far from home.
    Each day -- and particularly on this historic day -- we honor the men and
    women in uniform who serve our country and protect our freedom. They travel
    to the dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember that for every
    person who is in uniform, there are families who wait for them to come home
    safely.
    I am honored that the military is such an important part, not just of my
    personal life, but of my professional one as well. The golf tournament we do
    each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung heroes. I am the
    son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the military,
    and I am a better person for it.
    In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man at whose memorial we stand,
    spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said:
    'I am greatly obliged to you, and to all who have come forward at the call
    of their country.'
    Just as they have stood tall for our country - we must always stand by and
    support the men and women in uniform and their families.
    Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the US Naval Glee Club."
    I have never been more proud of Tiger Woods than when I heard his 2-minute
    tribute to the military at the Inaugural Celebration in Washington DC. You
    know he was greatly pressured to be there. You know the liberals have been
    mad at him for a decade for not joining their ranks. You know he didn't want
    to be there. So instead of paying homage to Obama, he paid tribute to our
    soldiers. Not one time did Tiger mention Obama or the inauguration or the
    new administration. You know, he knew he would disappoint, even anger, many,
    many liberals. But Tiger is his own man. His old man taught him to be his
    own man. Somewhere in that cold, gray Washington sky, old Earl was smiling
    down on his son.

    And there will be one more crying hug waiting for Tiger when he passes
    through the Pearly Gates!

    It just proves that our kids today don't have the right influenses in life ( parents that care and raise them to do right) Tiger did and look what he has accomplished. There is no better influence on a young boy than his father. Most of them are not there for them enough. My father was one who also failed in that department, fortunately I got what I needed from my grandparents and a lot of it in the Marine Corp. A lot of young men today could benefit from the Military.
