Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Good points, I wish I had seen the CNN/Aaron Brown piece. It reinforces something I learned thru family.

My namesake was killed in WWII, november 1944, after having been wounded in battle twice, and given the option of a desk job way behind the lines. Instead, he chose to go back to his unit, and was killed a few months later leading a mine-clearing expedition.

His devotion to the cause at hand, his love of country & freedom, and his loyalty and devotion to his "band of brothers" superceded all other concerns (compare that JFKerry's quick out after 3 scratches). He paid the ultimate price for it. Out nation, over time, has created a thread of love of liberty and freedom that transcends the self-centeredness of our culture. Thank God for that.

And don't forget to pray for the recovery and healing of those young men and women, and all the rest.
