Tiger Woods at Obama Inauguration
 
Received this in an e-mail.
Quote:

Tiger Woods is a Highly Educated Individual who was properly raised and
taught to be his own man by an educated Mother and Father.
You can readily see that Tiger Woods listened to his parents and remains
very proud of them both.
Many citizens are not aware of the following, which is the reason for me
sending this e-mail to my friends and I would appreciate you sending it on
to your friends.
A COPY OF HIS SPEECH AT THE 2009 INAUGURATION
Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the Obama
inauguration.
His inviters were stunned, shocked when he did not deliver the message they
expected.
A brief read and you will understand why the media swept Woods' remarks
under the rug with no further ado and why the liberal left of our American
society was again displeased with Tiger.

His speech was entitled

"You'll Never Walk Alone"
[text is word-for-word as posted on Tiger's 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
..."

====

Tiger Woods' 2-minute, 5-second tribute to the our nation's military was
delivered January 18th at the Inaugural Celebration inWashington, DC.
He had been subjected to intense pressure to attend and offer remarks.
Especially so by liberals who have demeaned and criticized him for a decade
for not joining their ranks.
Yet, at the Lincoln Memorial, instead of paying homage to Barack Obama,
Tiger paid tribute to our soldiers.
Not once did Tiger mention Obama, the inauguration or the new
administration.
Understanding that expressing his love for America and his appreciation for
our military men and women would disappoint the national news media and the
liberal left, he did what he thought was best for the people of our country.
But Tiger, being is his own man, just as his father taught him to be his own
man.
Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, Colonel Earl Woods was
smiling down on his beloved son.
And there will be one more crying hug waiting for Tiger when the time comes
he passes through heaven's gates into God's arms.

******
What's that you say?
You did not previously know what Tiger said?
You did not see a video clip of him speaking on any national television
network?
You did not see a photo of Tiger at the Lincoln Memorial offering his
remarks honoring our military.
You did not read a story in the NY Times?
His appearance at the Inaugural Celebration had been widely hailed and
promoted in advance by the Obama inaugural organizers ... yet January 18
when he came and spoke ... afterwards, a black out.

If you are as tired of the biased, hypocritical, liberal media hoopla as I
am, please send this on to your friends. Thanks
Some information I found on his web site.
Wake-up time

Biggest challenge
Did you know that Tiger's biggest challenge is to become a better person tomorrow?
Retreat

Perfect day
Did you know Tiger's perfect day is to surf, ski, play golf and go spear-fishing in the same day?

Excellent post there Last Crow, Wood's is no doubt, the talented offspring that results from a disciplined, yet loving family life and father. He listened, learned, worked hard and respected his father's advise and those around him and used that valuable life education, discipline, hard work, advice and skill, to be what and where he is today.

"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. "
Tiger Woods.

Various Tea Party organizations including Silent Majority and Tea Party Patriots are holding rallies in front of media outlets on Oct 17, called "Operation: Can You Hear Me Now?". Get in touch with some of these organizations and see about adding to their numbers at least at this time. If you are already planning on attending, a mention of Tiger Woods on your sign might be appropriate...

This is truly an excellent post containing information I never heard about a man I never thought twice about! I have a completely different opinion and respect for Tiger Woods now.

suprdave 09-26-2009 08:57 PM

Thanks for posting that. Good info.

orangello 09-26-2009 10:10 PM

:eek: I had no idea. Thanks for posting that insightful info.

Nice post. I definitely had no idea his old man wa a career military operator. I have respected the man for the way he has handled his "stardom" and fame, much like Michael, but now I have an even greater respect for him.

But, golf still sucks....

Ain't THAT the truth! Golf balls are pretty neat though - a couple miles of continuous rubber bands and a nice steel ball bearing in the center - makes great wrist rocket ammo!

Exactly what I was thinking as I read that. It's good to know that there's some "sane" people out there who are in the limelight.
Gary Sinise is another one who is a downright fine individual in real life.
