Cover Photo From May 5th, 5:00pm until May 6th, 5:00pm, Southeast Florida Honor Flight will participate in GREAT GIVE, a 24 hour online giving event designed to raise as much money as possible for local non profits.

Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to Southeast Florida Honor Flight as gifts made that day will receive a portion of bonus funds, making your dollars go even further than they would on any other day.

Southeast Florida Honor Flight is a 100% volunteer organization and 98% of our proceeds go towards flying our WWII Heroes and any veteran with a terminal illness to Washington DC to see their memorials for the day for free. The program will naturally transition to Korean War, Vietnam and all other veterans who served, on a chronological basis.

What better way to donate to Southeast Florida Honor Flight than during National Military Appreciation Month where we recognize, remember and honor past and present service members for all that they have done and continue to do for our country.

Remember, this event takes place May 5th starting at 5:00pm until May 6th ending 5:00pm!!!!!
All gifts (minimum donation of $10) must be made by credit or debit card by using our unique link: https://greatgiveflorida.org/#npo/southeast-florida-honor-flight-inc or by calling 1-844-GIVE-DAY (1-844-448-3329).

Please help us continue to make our Heroes dreams become a reality! Southeast Florida Honor Flight is grateful for your support.

A pair of would-be jihadists learned a very important lesson over the weekend – in America, we shoot back.

The men, believed to be radicalized roommates from Phoenix, tried to launch an attack on a gathering of freedom-lovers in of all places – the Lone Star State. It would turn out to be a most unfortunate decision.
The cold hard reality is that we don’t know how many more radicalized Muslims might be living among us – waiting to wage jihad.
It turned out those practicing their First Amendment rights were protected by those practicing their Second Amendment rights. Within a matter of moments – the jihadists were quickly dispatched to the Hereafter thanks to a straight-shooting traffic cop.

Authorities have yet to categorize it as a terrorist attack, but one thing is clear. Police thwarted what could have been an unprecedented massacre on American soil.

The intended target was a contest for cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Among the speakers were AFDI president Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his criticism of radical Islam.

Now, you may not agree with Miss Geller's tactics. Some might accuse her of poking a bear – and that may very well be true.

But Miss Geller does have Constitutional right to poke the bear. She does have a Constitutional right to free speech. And those who disagree with her have a Constitutional right to disagree.

But they do not have a constitutional right to gun down those who might say or write or draw something that disparages the Prophet Muhammad.

Among the many painful ironies in the current racial turmoil is that communities scattered across the country were disrupted by riots and looting because of the demonstrable lie that Michael Brown was shot in the back by a white policeman in Missouri -- but there was not nearly as much turmoil created by the demonstrable fact that a fleeing black man was shot dead by a white policeman in South Carolina.

Totally ignored was the fact that a black policeman in Alabama fatally shot an unarmed white teenager, and was cleared of any charges, at about the same time that a white policeman was cleared of charges in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

In a world where the truth means so little, and headstrong preconceptions seem to be all that matter, what hope is there for rational words or rational behavior, much less mutual understanding across racial lines?

When the recorded fatal shooting of a fleeing man in South Carolina brought instant condemnation by whites and blacks alike, and by the most conservative as well as the most liberal commentators, that moment of mutual understanding was very fleeting, as if mutual understanding were something to be avoided, as a threat to a vision of "us against them" that was more popular.

That vision is nowhere more clearly expressed than in attempts to automatically depict whatever social problems exist in ghetto communities as being caused by the sins or negligence of whites, whether racism in general or a "legacy of slavery" in particular. Like most emotionally powerful visions, it is seldom, if ever, subjected to the test of evidence.

The "legacy of slavery" argument is not just an excuse for inexcusable behavior in the ghettos. In a larger sense, it is an evasion of responsibility for the disastrous consequences of the prevailing social vision of our times, and the political policies based on that vision, over the past half century.

Here we go: McClatchy suggests limits on free speech after Texas jihad shooting
You knew this was coming. It was inevitable. We have seen it before. When the Obama Administration blamed the Benghazi jihad attack on a video about Muhammad, there were calls in the mainstream media for restrictions on the freedom of speech. Eric Posner in Slate derided the First Amendment’s “sacred status” and declared that “Americans need […]
