I know the anniversary of September 11 is always a hard day for America and much of the world.  I know it is much more difficult for the people who have lost a loved one and some will never see this day without a tear in their eye.  It is a fragile line to walk to say that there is good that came from such an evil act but we all witnessed the courage of the brave men and women who gave of themselves, body and heart.   The out pouring of gifts and donations to help people more hurt than ourselves was truly amazing.  The story that keeps coming back to my memory even between the anniversaries of Sept. 11, is about the Maasai people in Kenya andmasai-nr-lekerruki2.jpg Tanzania.  These people are literally “dirt poor” and they gave their most prized and treasured gift, a gift that sustains their very lives.  They gave fourteen cattle, now at first thought that doesn’t seem like a big thing to you or I, but to the Maasai people cattle are everything.  They themselves do not live on the beef of these cows, except for an occasional ceremony, they live on the blood mixed with milk taken from these cattle.  To the Maasia, Cattle represent not only wealth but are spiritually respected as well.  The Maasai elders deemed the fourteen cattle and their offspring to be sacred and will never be eaten or given away.  They now graze on a farm near the village of Enoosaen as a permanent tribute to the people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

This story always reminds me of what Jesus said about the poor widow in Luke Chap 21 Verse 1 thru 4:  “And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.  And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.  And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:  For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.”

May God Bless the families of the victims of September 11, 2001

Last week I read a couple of  articles and Here, on the net about the Russian Government selling some 250 Sukhoi-30 Long Range Fighter Jets to the Iranian Government.  The SU- 30 is not even close to the best Jet Russia has to offer, we should be glad Russia did not sell them any of the SU-47’s, well it wasn’t reported in the news anyway, but who really knows what Russia is selling the Iranians?   The SU -47 is one wicked looking jet fighter.  It’s just comforting to know that The United States has had a forward swept wing jet since 1984, the U.S. X – 29 below and who knows what else our government has in the works to protect our great country.  Unfortunately, the reality is that even our own forward swept wing U.S. X -29 was based on a Jet from World War II, the Junkers Ju 287 which was a German Luftwaffe aircraft begun in early 1943 and had it’s test flight on August 16, 1944.  It was a sort of Frankenstein’s monster, pieced together from several diffent aircraft. Including the nose wheels from two B-24 Liberators, a fuselage of an He 177 and the tail was constructed of Ju 388 parts.  Even then, the Soviets were closer to that project than the Americans.  The Germans had made 17 test flights with the Ju 287 V1 before the allies overran the testing airfield and captured the V1 and the nearly complete V2, and who do you think flew the V2?  Correct, the Soviet Union made a test flight in 1947, and the V3 with improvements failed to get off the drawing board.  My point isn’t that because these jets have forward swept wings it somehow makes them any more lethal, but you have to admit it does make them look futuristic, even if the design does go all the way back to 1943.  Thanks to Realpolitik1776 for the video.
