so my previous post and the most recent one by teachinfourth got me thinking of my brother, of kyle field and of the power a group of people has when united.
this is kyle field on september twenty-second, two thousand-one — the first game for the aggies after the september eleventh attacks. students organized the red, white and blue-out. each deck was assigned a different color shirt to be worn for the game against oklahoma state. more than one hundred-fifty thousand dollars was raised in shirt sales, which was donated to fire department new york charities.
isn’t that impressive? all in a short day’s work, right?
and it’s such a pretty picture. but then, any picture of kyle field is pretty, even when there’re stupid longhorns in the stadium.
wait on the lord,
and keep his way,
and he shall exalt you to inherit the land;
when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
i have seen the wicked in great power,
and spreading himself like a native green tree.
yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
indeed i sought him, but he could not be found.
mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
for the future of that man is peace.
but the salvation of the righteous is from the lord;
he is their strength in the time of trouble.
and the lord shall help them and deliver them;
he shall deliver them from the wicked,
and save them,
because they trust in him (psalm 37:34-37, 39-40).
