An Open Letter

(Note: This letter was posted several
years BEFORE Senator Kennedy's death.)

Dear Senator Kennedy:

I would like to tell you a short story, make a request, and
also let you know of my concern for you & your health.

Just before World War II there was this certain guy who
graduated from high school in the Washington, D.C. area
that you later would meet - unfortunately for you - who went
to Canada (not as a draft dodger) and joined the RCAF to
learn to fly.

War broke out shortly after that and he came back home
and joined the USAAF (predecessor of the USAF) and was
ordered to be Captain of the biggest bomber at that time -
the B-24.

Some time later while stationed on a remote island in the
Pacific, Japanese
guerrillas in the dark of night sabotaged
the instruments of several planes so that all would become
ineffective shortly after takeoff - essentially dooming the
crews and their planes. As it turned out, the first sabotaged
plane to take off that day was the young bomber pilot's
B-24 that one day fate would bring you both together for
a very brief moment.

This pilot took his crippled bomber to an altitude that the
crew's parachutes would open and ordered everyone to
bail out after the bomb load was dropped over the Pacific
and other bombers waiting takeoff were ordered not to
leave perhaps saving many American lives. Then single
handily he flew his plane for hours until the fuel was low
enough to make an emergency landing without instruments -
thus saving all crew members and his bomber.

After the war, this pilot went to work for Eastern Air Lines.
On one of his flights a man rushed into the cabin with a gun
shouting that this flight was going to Cuba but he was surprised
to see the captain (our former B-24 pilot) with a loaded German
Luger pointed directly at him. Needless to say, the 727 didn't
go to Cuba and the man was arrested by the FBI at its next
regularly scheduled stop - bound & gagged.

Sometime later, an intoxicated passenger with an open bottle
of whiskey tried to get on board his flight in Boston. This
passenger just happened to be a new freshman Congressman
but the pilot asked the Congressman to give up his bottle (as
prescribed by Federal Law) and when he refused was forcefully
ejected from the flight. As it turned out, the new congressman
was you and that pilot was my Dad. I don't know if you tried
to call his boss and get him fired but if you did, Captain Eddie
Rickenbacker would have hung up on you in an instant! Real
men were like that in those days.

I'm telling you this because my Dad & Eddie Rickenbacker
are not the type that you and some of your compatriots in
Congress approve - the tough independent American citizen
who rose up from lowly status to make something of them -
selves without government subsidies.

Your neck brace worn only
during press conference
the next day.

Your record in congress has been a miserable one. Included
in that would be the death of a young college girl you were
dating (even though you were married) who died when you
were intoxicated once again and you left to perish in a submerged
automobile and didn't call for help until the next day while you
worried with friends about your career. You are the only Kennedy
not to have graduated from Harvard because of a cheating

You have advocated for years the killing of millions of American
babies lives and almost always voted against our military. Was this
because you met real men like my Dad & Captain Eddie and knew
you could never measure up to them or because you realized at
point that your family fortune was made illegally?

You & your cheated wife.

My request is not a difficult one for you - please resign your
in the Senate and spend the rest of your time contem -
plating where
you will spend eternity! One day you will come
before the Judge
of the Universe and be asked what your
relationship was with His
Son. Nothing else will matter then -
not family name, church member -
ship, wealth, status in
Washington or anything else.

I'm really concerned about you (and ailing Senator Byrd also -
formally of the KKK) and your wellbeing - so much so that I will
be praying for you often and just to help you out - I'll tell you how
to be ready for that future court date with you Maker. Just check
"comments" and I certainly hope & pray that you will be ready
& forgiven!

Professor Howdy

P.S. I pray that you might accept this in a similar manner that
an ancient
King named David was challenged by a prophet
named Nathan. Oh, if any
of the above is inaccurate - please
let me know.

Four important things to KNOW:

1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus,
Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist,
Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned
& fall short of the glory of God.

2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal
separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at
no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is
Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ
(God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of
Peace & Savior of the World).

3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world
(Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist,
Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians,
Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up
His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone,
anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in,
relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall
have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven).

4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE.
No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic,
Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist,
Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives)
to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through)
ME (no other name).

This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - -

(Rev. 3:20)

{Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good
things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian -
however they are great afterwards!!!}

Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that
leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment),
and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow
the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness,
forever with God), and only a few find it.
--Matthew 7:13-14

P U R P O S E of 'Thought & Humor':

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts

O God, You have taught me from my
youth; And to this day I declare
Your wondrous works. Now also when
I am old and gray headed, O God,
do not forsake me, Until I declare
Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.
Ps 71

Excellent advice for the Senator.

Kennedy's support of Obama and previous support of Al Gore is bad enough, not to mention the other things about him which are far worse.

With his brain tumor, he may not have long to turn to Jesus for salvation.

I used to drive across the Rickenbacker Causeway when I used to live in Miami.
