#OBY (Others Before Yourself)


First, you had the “Rockabilly Smack You Silly Chicken Chili.” Then, there was “Salato’s Garlicky Potato and Roasted Tomato Soup.” Finally, I brought the “Classic Chicken Noodle Soup with ‘Tis the Season’ Spices.” Those were the three soups I created to win Franklin Road Academy’s First Annual “Souper Bowl,” Read more

Growing Up with Peyton


A few weeks ago, I never thought I'd see Peyton Manning take another snap, much less throw another pass or another touchdown. Much less win another playoff game. Much less defeat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots to win another AFC Championship. (Unbelievably, after all the drama, Peyton Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant


The Revenant: **** out of 4. It's easy to think of The Revenant as simply the vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio's brutally other-worldly Oscar-winning performance or as Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow-up to last year's Award-winning Birdman. In fact, as I was sitting in the theater watching Leo eat raw bison liver and sleep in Read more

The Importance of Henderson, Tennessee (and all Hometowns)

“Everybody has to have a hometown, Binghamton’s mine. In the strangely brittle, terribly sensitive make-up of a human being, there is a need for a place to hang a hat or a kind of geographical womb to crawl back into, or maybe just a place that’s familiar because that’s where you grew up.

  “When I dig back through memory cells, I get one particularly distinctive feeling—and that’s one of warmth, comfort and well-being. For whatever else I may have had, or lost, or will find—I’ve still got a hometown. This, nobody’s gonna take away from me.”

Things Worth Dying For – Reflections on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Faith, Featured, Misc. Posts, Politics | Leave a comment

1942_d-day_normandy_map

It’s tough to express feelings about D-Day as someone who was born over 40 years after June 6, 1944. Most historians refer to it as a turning point in western civilization. When I think of D-Day, I think of images. The opening scene of Saving Private Ryan. My visit to the eerily peaceful beach in spring 2010. But I also think of words – FDR’s D-Day prayer over the radio, General Eisenhower’s speech to his men, and more.

I’ve made it somewhat of a tradition here at The Wise Guise to commemorate D-Day with a reflective post. I’d urge you to read my best friend Jay Salato’s post from two years ago reflecting on the speech he had the opportunity to give at the commemorative ceremony at the U.S. Memorial Cemetery at Omaha Beach. Then, I’d urge you to re-visit my post from last year and listen to/read FDR’s prayer and Ike’s speech.

d-day

This year, I want to share two more pieces of history that I’ve recently found to continue the impossible task of commemorating the courage and sacrifice of those men who charged Normandy Beach.
