The Memorial

Photography Prints

 

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it.

The seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, “Good morning Alex.” “Good morning pastor,” replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.

“Pastor McGhee, what is this?” Alex asked. “Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque.

Little Alex’s voice was barely audible when he asked, “Which service, the 9:00 o’clock or the 11:00 o’clock?”

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Sedona: Journal of Emergence

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

After my initial experience in Sedona, I needed to learn more. At that period in time there was no Internet; information was much harder to come by.

My aunt had never encountered anything as she encountered with me and had no idea what was going on.

The only information I had was a brochure from an art gallery in Sedona. Other than that brochure the only thing I could find was the American Indians considered Sedona sacred land.

As soon as I arrived home I called the art gallery, the nice lady directed me to the editor of the magazine “Sedona Emergence,” which at that time was a small publication of just a few pages, today it is a monthly magazine of several pages and contains article from some of the top writers in the field of metaphysics. 

I contacted Marlene the publisher and relayed to her my story of my encounter at Bell Rock. I was slightly surprised when she informed me those things happen all the time.

She asked me to send her an article about the encounter and said she would include it in the next publication, and as compensation, she would send me a free copy.

I immediately typed an article about y experience at Bell Rock and sent it to her, a few weeks later I received the promised magazine.

Musket Balls and Prayer Gave Us Our Freedom

photo of book

The Five Thousand Year Leap

Written by Gary Wonning

Aside from our early American patriots burning desire for freedom, the two things that actually gave us freedom were prayer and musket balls.

The founders were all religious or spiritual beings, the only schooling available in those days were church schools, hence they all, in their own way had a belief in God. 

Almost all believed in prayer and prayed daily,  they weren’t perfect people who never did anything wrong , they, just like everyone else made mistakes , but their belief was in God and depended on God to guide them in their daily lives. They didn’t always listen to what God directed them to do, but they believed God would guide them.

They also believed in their right to defend themselves. One of the actions that lead to the American Revolution was when the British tried to confiscate our weapons and gunpowder.  That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

The patriots responded with a passion unheard of up to that period in time. The desire for freedom was so great that many were willing to sacrifice everything they had to achieve freedom from tyranny . 

Soon the Battle of Bunker Hill followed and our quest for freedom began. 

Our citizen army took up arms and despite many struggles and hardships, achieved a freedom unheard of up until that time. 

It is well documented the early patriots belief in a Supreme Being.  There are many  documents to prove the early founders, as well as high ranking government officials since expressed a belief in God. 

George Washington himself prayed daily and publicly displayed his belief in a Supreme Deity. It is because of this belief he was able to survive the many attacks on his life while fighting at the front lines. 

Many “miracles” are attributed to our ability to defeat the strongest military in the world. 

There can be little doubt as to why the founders placed the first and second amendment to the Constitution at the top of our Bill of Rights. 

Without those two rights, we have nothing.

The Tea Party Isn’t An Extremist Right Wing Organization

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

I’m not sure how the Tea Party can be called an extremest right wing organization.

The Tea Party, which isn’t even a political party , but rather a loose knit national organization that only has local structure, there is no national organization or even political candidates.

Like our constitution and consequently our country, it was began as an idea. The tea party has much the same agenda as our original founders had. The Tea Party was began as a way for us to find our way back to what the original founders of our country had in mind.

There is nothing extreme in their theology, the extremism is in the minds of their detractors whose thinking has strayed so far away from what common sense and decency means that to them it seems extreme. What the Tea Party stands for would have been the accepted thinking of the nation only 30 years ago. The nation has drifted so far left that the rational of most today would be considered immoral and even illegal to most logical thinking people.

The media has distorted and downright lied about the happenings in this country for so long, and they haven’t been challenged that their distorted view of life has become an acceptable norm. 

Values such as showing respect for your elders and others, being self reliant and not depending on government for continued assistance. decency, self respect, free will, and  the value of hard work,  the list goes on and on. 

Everything this country used to stand for  has been ridiculed and reduced to mockery.

The Art Class

Sell Art Online

A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s artwork.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”

The teacher paused and said, “but no one knows what God looks like.”

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”
