7378-E481-F3C8 : Bounce Probe from mattotarim

This message is being sent to you from
Mailing Lists for Eretz.org
because your address
has been bouncing (failing to receive) messages from the mailing list


The purpose of this message is to do one final test; were this message to
bounce, you would be removed from the list. Since you are reading this,
either the message did not bounce or there is some odd condition that
results in bounces being received by the list processor while the mail
still goes through to your mailbox. If you are concerned, some possible
explanations for the problem are included below. For your convenience, a
copy of the bounce message is attached to this message.

You should review any forwarding arrangements that may in place and make
sure that they are operating properly. You may also want to check with
your Internet provider to make sure that everything is OK on their end,
and check with with the list server at
or with the person(s) running the list at
to make sure that you are still signed up.

To reiterate, if this message bounces then you will automatically be
removed from the list. You should make sure that this did not happen, and
that you are still on the list. You should also try to figure out why the
list processor may have seen bounces.

Some possible explanations for this problem:

There may have been some problem, like a full mailbox, that was causing
bounces but which is now cleared. In that case, everything should be OK.

There may be some forwarding arrangement in place between the list server
and your mailbox which is both bouncing and delivering messages. This is
possible but uncommon. It generally happens when someone improperly sets
up a local list expander without properly dealing with bounces locally,
signs that addres up to a list, and lets a bad address stay on that local
expander. If this is the case, it should be immediately obvious from the
address above (since it will most likely be the address of the list
expander and not your address).

Your Internet provider may be having some troubles. Check with them to
make sure that everything is in working order.

Someone may be faking up bounces and sending them to the list server in
order to force your removal. Since they can't fake a bounce of this
message, which contains a unique code, you are OK. The attached bounce
should contain enough evidence to help track down the forger.

Very Touching Poem and Letter from US Marine

God is Greater than ANY problem I have !!!

    Please don’t delete this until you send it on,

Let’s send it around the world.


This is a poem being sent from a Marine to his Dad.
For those who take the time to read it,

you’ll see a letter from him to his Dad at the bottom.

It makes you truly thankful

 for not only the Marines,

but ALL of our troops.


We all came together,
Both young and old
To fight for our freedom,
To stand and be bold.

In the midst of all evil,
We stand our ground,
And we protect our country
From all terror around.

Peace and not war,
Is what some people say.
But I’ll give my life,
So you can live the American way.

I give you the right
To talk of your peace.
To stand in your groups,
and protest in our streets.

But still I fight on,
I don’t bitch, I don’t whine.
I’m just one of the people
Who is doing your time.

I’m harder than nails,
Stronger than any machine.
I’m the immortal soldier,
I’m a

So stand in my shoes,
And leave from your home.
Fight for the people who hate you,
With the protests they’ve shown.

Fight for the stranger,
Fight for the young.
So they all may have,
The greatest freedom you’ve won

Fight for the sick,
Fight for the poor
Fight for the cripple,
Who lives next door.

But when your time comes,
Do what I’ve done.
For if you stand up for freedom,
You’ll stand when the fight’s done

Hey Dad,
Do me a favor and label this “The Marine”

and send it to
everybody on your email list.

Even leave this letter in it.

I want this rolling all over the US ;

I want every home reading it.

Every eye seeing it.  

And every heart to feel it. 

So can you please send this for me?

I would but my email time isn’t that long

and I don’t have much time anyway.

You know what Dad?

I wondered what it would be like to truly understand

what JFK said in His inaugural speech.

“When the time comes to lay down my life for my country,
I do not cower from this responsibility.

I welcome it.”
Well, now I know.

And I do. Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do. 

Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, 

and I will miss the birth of our first born child, 

I would do it 70 times over to fight for

the place that God has made for my home.

I love you all and I miss you very much.

I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby,

but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing,

 I will be coming home soon.

Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too.

Please let this marine (and all our military)

know we care by passing his poem onto your friends

even if you don’t usually take time to forward mail…do it this time!

If this touched you as much as it touched me,

please forward it on.
Let’s help Aaron’s dad spread the word …

  someone pays for you and me.
