The Flying Dutchman: A Poem

They tell me of a Captain who from Davy’s side was torn

who sailed his ship the Dutchman in the wind around the Horn.

No ship had ever sailed in such a storm around the key;

this ship was like no other as it sliced the savage sea.

The men were made of granite, Aye! The deck was made of steel;

the strongest wave of Neptune couldn’t turn the iron keel.

They saw him in the fury turn his ship into the gale,

a single beam of light reflecting ‘low the billowed sail.

With courage of the living – and ‘tross* above his mast

he was lost in crushing waves that bury ships in the past.

The Dutchman did not perish in the deep beneath the sea,

instead he lives as guardian of ships that sail the ‘lee*.

Out around the Horn he sails in the fury of the night

and naught do sailors see but of the hull and glowing light.

He awaits the eerie day when the storm will bring him on

when he again can sail into the harbor with the dawn.

Another ship must founder in the place the Dutchman fell

releasing his curs’d crew from Satan’s iron grip in hell.

You can see him in the lightning – his crew the devil’s knaves

reflecting giant shadows from the sails across the waves.

He sails the boiling ocean, flying in the clouds on high,

awaiting now the cursed ship that Fate will bring to die.

That ship will raise its anchor on the tide that brings the morn

to meet the fated Captain who from Davy’s side was torn.

The Cost of Freedom


The image represents a tiny portion of the cost of freedom; with freedom comes great sacrifice. No one understands what that  truly means and what it requires more than an American.

Why The US Air Force Is The Backbone Of The Fight Against Ebola

A group of 30 US military personnel, bound for Liberia to help in global efforts to fight the Ebola virus outbreak, board a US Air Force C-17 Globemaster III at Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport in Dakar, Senegal, on October 19, 2014.


Let’s give credit where credit is due. Thank you warriors, once again for your service and sacrifice. Come home soon! (After your 21 days in Italy, of course). Anna

With so much misinformation circulating about the scale and domestic danger of the Ebola threat, less attention has been paid to the US military’s effort to stem the disease’s spread in Africa. Read more

Who Won the American Revolution?: Crash Course US History #7


John Green teaches you about the American Revolution. And the Revolutionary War. I know we’ve labored the point here, but they weren’t the same thing. In any case, John will teach you about the major battles of the war, and discuss the strategies on both sides. Everyone is familiar with how this war played out for the Founding Fathers; they got to become the Founding Fathers. But what did the revolution mean to the common people in the United States? For white, property-owning males, it was pretty sweet. They gained rights that were a definite step up from being British Colonial citizens. For everyone else, the short-term gains were not clear. Women’s rights were unaffected, and slaves remained in slavery. As for poor white folks, they remained poor and disenfranchised. The reality is it took a long time for this whole democracy thing to get underway, and the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness weren’t immediately available to all these newly minted Americans.
