Semper Fidelis Award


Thank you to Dr. Rex (Horty) of It Is What It Is for this award that signifies loyalty and love between friends.  I am honored that Horty considers me  worthy of this award and as her friend.Friendship1

In the words of this Award’s creator:

The Semper Fidelis Award

“I created this award because I wanted to do something special for my friends on WordPress. Semper Fidelis is Latin and means “Always Loyal.” Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that!

Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them!”

This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.

The Rules:

Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Nominate 5 bloggers whose loyalty and friendship you value and you consider being part of your “pack of wolves” on WordPress.
  • Post something special for all of your nominees separately and dedicate it to them. This can be a quote, saying, poem, and picture.  Anything you think that would fit that person.
  • Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

My nominees are:

Friendship4Back around April 2012 with the arrest of George Zimmerman, I looked for a blog of like-minded individuals.  TheJBMission was the first blog in Google’s return that was actually pro-justice for Trayvon Martin.  The number of people commenting was small.  As someone new to the blogosphere, that attracted me. They were personable and welcomed me.   It was by participating on TheJBMission that I learned of other blogs, such as Frederick Leatherman and Dave Knechel.  When Blackbutterfly7 opened in August 2012, and although busy with her job, family and own blog, JB found time to stop by.  I honor JB’s loyalty and friendship.

Friendship5What would my wolf pack be without the Obamacrat?  The Obamacrat was introduced to Blackbutterfly7 via 3Chicspolitico where I cross-posted some articles.  Jueseppi honored Blackbutterfly7 by reblogging those posts and in doing so, I have met many other bloggers.

friendship6I appreciate Frederick Leatherman’s friendship and also that of his wife, Crane-Station.  Their blog is a place where I always feel welcomed to express my opinion and share with others.

Friendship2When Caleb G. first commented on Blackbutterfly7, I saw a person loyal to the subject of equal justice for all.

Friendship3My pack would not be complete without Glenn.  Our friendship is new, but valued.

I am now on my way to deliver this award to my nominees.
