[Folks, this is OUTSTANDING and should be required reading for EVERYONE! - 




   Tiger Woods received a special invitation to speak at the inauguration. 
His inviters were stunned, when he did not deliver the message they 
expected. You will see why the media swept it under the rug with no further 
ado, who & why of a certain element is angered at Tiger.

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 

"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. Liberals have been mad at him 
for a decade for not joining their ranks. Youknow 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, the inauguration or the new 
administration. He knew beforehand that his love for America, and 
appreciation for our military men & women would anger them further. But 
Tiger is his own man his father taught him to be his own man.

Somewhere over that cold, gray Washington sky, old Earl Woods was smiling 
down on his beloved son. And there will be one more crying hug waiting for 
Tiger when he passes through the Pearly Gates into God's arms.
