Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

They say they respect everyone
They say their philosophy harbours pillars of love, peace and universal brotherhood
They say they do not want us to be like them
And that people become like them only out of their own interest

And all this I have found to be fibs
For they think..deep in their heart that
everyone other than them, will go to hell
They look upon us and call us infidels
They entice us to become like them by money,murder and any means available
They do not remember what they owe to our country,
They think the country is their enemy
They boldly slight it
And my people, are under a cloak of ignorance
Being peace loving my people will not do anything

They think that bombs and money
can make us like them
Through terror and financial prowess
They want to create slaves all over

My own people see all this
And turn a blind eye towards it
They are not concerned about
Country, culture and heritage
They are more worried about money and pleasures of the flesh

Why mother
Why are your sons and daughters so ungrateful to you?
You have given them everything
And they behave like spoilt brats
And they curse your holy soil

Oh Lord, if this is not the height of intolerance and injustice
What is? What is the way out of this terrible plight?
Why can’t a man do good things in his own way?
Why should he become like someone else?

And yet our people think
We are communal if we think about ourselves
And we are secular if we think only of them
Our people do not care for their brethren

And yet, after all this they say
Their philosophy stands for love, peace and universal brotherhood

Hilary the lack of interest in Blenko and things made in USA
is rampant and can not be changed.
It is the time we live in.
No one really cares about their neighbor or protecting this country.
Blenko is a small factory working a dozen men and a dozen women who do the office work and sell the glass it is this and nothing more.
Blenko Glass means nothing to so many and nothing you do will change this.

COAL BOWL IS THE FOOTBALL BETWEEN THE 2 AND FENTON MADE THE TROPHY AND ITS BEAUTIFUL
BASKETBALL IS CALL
WELL IM HAVING A SENIOR MOMENT BUT BLENKO AND THE BAYLISS TEAM DID MAKE THIS TROPHY
THE TROPHY (S) ARE HOUSED AT WVU SINCE MARSHALL HAS NOT WON

Why does WVU continue to play Marshall?
I see no benefit to WVU.
Who makes these decisons?
Hillary are you responsible for this along with Blenko's decline?
If getting Manchin out of office means WVU will not play Marshall I'd well I'd vote for an elephant.

Wow from the looks of this the spam filters have been lifted.
Great news. Although just typing my vent is freshing, unlike others - not seeing it published doesn't bother me.
