"There are those who would say that my politics aren't exactly practical, but you can't deny that they're self-serving! :-)"

Ha! I really like your writing. Very thoughtful and funny. This whole post was a beautiful setup to a great finishing line.

Thank you!

Hello. Just finished reading your blog. Actually, your picture is what first attracted me. I enjoyed reading how open you are with your past. I've gone through hard times myself and can relate. You seem very open and down to earth. I'm a cool, good looking and easy going guy. Hope to hear more from you.

Too many times have I been blamed for something I haven't done and had any desire to do, so I truly believe if a court of law can't produce enough evidence to convict someone then by all means - let it be.

Hi Opollo,

I have heard that you guys are finally off lockdown as of Monday. Such good news. It couldn't have been fun.

I am already writing to someone in the DOC, but I find your blogs and what you have to say extremely interesting. I will pop in from time to time and leave a comment.

SA is a crazy little country and we have a long way to go. but every day it gets better. We were blessed to have had a leader of the stature of Nelson Mandela and his spirits and ideals still influence the running of our country.

He is 93 now and not in good health and we fear for his well being. The good he has done will abound long after he has gone, we know that, but we want to keep him around as a symbol - to quote you - of what can happen when good people stand together. That we all love him is without question. Speak again soon. Axel

Sgt Linley,

I thought I left you a message a few days ago but I can't seem to find it on your blog. Not to worry though, I can deliver it again with with all the respect I have for you.

In despite of your situation, I'm glad to read that you are o. k. and still motivating lives. You have always been one to show us how to lead from the front, both on and off duty. Many a quote from Sgt Linley has been passed on to my Jr troops and a few time the Senior Enlisted. Thank you for helping me grow to be the Man I am today.

GOD doesn't give us nothing we can not handle,

SSgt Benjamin James (ret.)

David, very touching and a great read. I was curious where you would take this concept given your "lack of freedom." But, you hit a home run. Bravo!

Not being a marine I probably should not be responding to this post, but here goes.

David, you may remember when working a project in springfield, we were eating breakfast at the hotel and I made some oatmeal. It turned out the "hot" water was actually cold.

After one bite, I commented how bad this was, then I ate it anyway not wanting to waste food. you commented, "YOu would make a good marine" having seen me eat a bowl of cold oatmeal. I know it was a throwaway joke, but I took it as a high compliment. Thanks!

Young Lcpl Nesbit from 2/8 reporting in....your words are sobering. You were and still are the real thing. Marines are not manufactured they are created. You Sir were created in marvelous fashion. I remember you as a person of integrity, honor and drive. We all fall short of expectations at some point in life. I want you to know that as Marines we are always bound by the red, white an blue of this country. We shared the burden of protecting our borders and the sacrifice of self for the common cause.
Stay motivated. I am inspired to hear of your integrity in your situation. Just know that there is a bright side to every situation. Keep your hands in God's Hands and trust in His words. I am praying for you. God bless you brother.

Pastor Woodrow Nesbit Jr.
