David Archuleta, Dan Clark, Jason Hewlett and Dean Kaelin ~ Military Tribute Tour Through Middle East Marches ON!

Little did we know when David left for this Military Tribute Tour to the Mid East that we would be the recipients of such an outpouring of updates. No, not from him so much, but apparently, he has people for that. We have been gifted with heart-wrenching, humorous, humbling blogs to laugh and cry over, photos to smile and sigh over, and even the snippet heard round the world of David singing “Bring Him Home.”

Maybe hardened soldiers can withstand the full impact of his voice on that song, but it is probably a mercy that his fans did not receive the full report. We are better prepared now and can anticipate the song with something close to aplomb. Hah!

We have received so much that the previous thread, which I thought would easily hold the contents of the entire trip, has become heavier than a C-17 cargo plane to load. So this thread is a much needed additional transport for supplies and we will see how far this one takes us.

There is a single thought I come away with from everything we have seen up to this point on this journey. It was brought home to me, everything I had read on the blogs, every picture, every tweet of this trip by a single photo taken by Jason Hewlett on the way to Afghanistan. The picture below (edit mine) snapped on the plane of the combat boots worn by the soldiers. The nameless, faceless, heroes. The men and women whose feet are ready to march off to hell if need be to keep the world free.

David Archuleta ~ Ain’t No Sunshine When He’s Gone

Just had my annual check up (preparation for David’s return) and my lab results were in every way perfect, except that apparently, I have absolutely no vitamin D in my body.  The normal levels range up in the 90’s and my level was so low as to not even rate a number.  I was not surprised by the news; the only light I have received for months is from the weak glow of my laptop.  It has been far too cold to venture outside for long and since sunlight is essential for acquiring this vital vitamin, I was instead prescribed massive doses of vitamin D.  That, along with the welcome promise of warm weather will soon put me right.  Yet the whole thing got me thinking about another deficiency in D that I have been suffering from for the past two years.  By that I mean vitamin David.  The symptoms for both are remarkably similar:  a general feeling of being tired and a tendency toward depression.  hmmm.  Coincidence?  I think not.  It appears I am in good company as a cursory scan of twitter revealed several others who feel that David is sunshine incarnate.

Don’t know how he does it but David Archuleta naturally exudes positivity. @DavidArchie’s Chinese name is sunshine. pic.twitter.com/phtHFMPqto

The only motivation i have in life right now is David’s return. My sunshine will be back soon and that keeps me going. :) #DA2014

David Archuleta Is Coming Home and that means winter will be over! Hello Sunshine!

Archugeezer ‏@Archugeezer  Feb 28

David Archuleta Is Coming Home at the right time ’cause we can sure use a little more sunshine right now.

Mary Dee ‏@GoodPlaceDA2014  Feb 28

Welcome back Mr. Sunshine!! David Archuleta Is Coming Home.

Pattie #DA2014 ‏@Attwittsend  Feb 28

I am freezing. David Archuleta Is Coming Home soon and I’m sure he’s bringing some sunshine with him :)

David Archuleta Is Coming Home.The sunshine is retuningto our lives.

Pattie #DA2014 ‏@Attwittsend  Feb 28

David Archuleta Is Coming Home … ♫ You are my sunshine ♫

Debbie #DA2014 ‏@DebVaFOD  Feb 28

@Attwittsend Awww. He IS sunshine. David Archuleta Is Coming Home :)

So it appears that many of us suffer from the same want:   A severe deficiency in vitamin D caused by a lack of David Archuleta, i.e., Mr. Sunshine.  There is no cure for ODD, but we know its cause and ODDly enough, it can only be managed with adequate exposure to it, uh, him.  In short, we need our sunshine.

Celebrating Four Years With David Archuleta

Posted by Abrra on Friday, November 8, 2013

38

November 8th marks the 4th anniversary of The Voice. We want to thank all the fans who visit and comment over the years. All of you, along with David himself, are the inspiration that keeps us going. We are thankful to our staff writers, who have stood by our side and provided so many insightful articles, and to the guest writers who have come forward to add their voices too. Having so many diverse voices to share their thoughts has carried us through the long 2 year drought while David has been away. It is my honor to participate as an admin, along with Angelica, Bebereader and Djafan, on a fansite promoting the best singer in the world.

We took a look back into the archives and brought out the very first article published on this site, written by Angelica. In it she says we are here to celebrate his art and his humanity. After 4 years, I think I can safely say, mission accomplished!
~Abrra

There is David the artist. The Voice. That terrible, wonderful, glorious, soul embracing, knee buckling, sigh inducing, tear producing Voice. Then there is David the song writer, who we are just getting to know and anticipate the fruits of his labors there. *insert squee* There is David the dancer/performer, also a work in progress, and the work is going very well, I might add.

But over and above all this, the crown jewel, the cherry on top of all that delightful, delectable, deliciousness is the man himself. The David we have come to know off stage. A man of quiet strength, compassion, courage, humility and character. A man after our own hearts, when all we meant to do was love his art.

So we are here to celebrate his art, which is awesome, and his humanity, which is awesomer. We are here to celebrate the totality of his awesomeage. And that, though linguistically incorrect, is the charuth.
~Angelica

So thanks for standing by us and especially, by him. You all deserve a big round of applause because each and every one of you, are pretty dang awesome too!

Riders on the Storm ~ David Archuleta and Me

Posted by betsy on Saturday, June 8, 2013

storm-364e5ec

Last week I was working the late shift. My husband called me at work to let me know that there were bad storms coming (sometimes I am in a bubble at work, not really supposed to even look at my phone). They were already sheltering in the basement as the tornado sirens were blaring near our home. A few minutes later, we heard OUR sirens going off. I work 30 minutes from home. Customers started stopping at the store and asking if they could shelter there. Of course! By then I had checked my phone, and it seemed the warnings were widespread, take cover immediately, tornadoes sighted all over.

A couple of hours later, the customers had left, the warnings were gone, the last of the money was counted, the doors were locked, and I set the alarm and walked outside with my last 2 coworkers.

I checked my phone one last time, and noted that the tornado warning was extended for another hour. The sirens were back on. We had to drive home in this craziness. I popped in my TOSOD Asian Tour Edition, then settled in for the drive home. The rain subsided after awhile, and as I got a couple minutes from home, I turned on my camera and videotaped the drive.

(you never know what the heck you’ll see, maybe a tornado? Idk, lol – maybe I’ve seen too many TV shows.)

It wasn’t until I watched it back that I noticed the music. It’s very short, only a couple of minutes long, but there’s David’s voice amid the darkness and flashes of lightning.

The thing is, the Monday prior, we had a tornado hit our backyard. It sheared the tops of the trees in all our neighbors’ yards but made a direct hit on our huge 300 year old Oak tree, knocking it down onto our garage, yard, pool, and power lines. My husband was the only one home. As he was stepping into the shower he heard a loud noise. Running to the back window upstairs, he looked out and saw it happen.

This is a picture of what remained of our garage AFTER the tree was removed.

That was also the night of the terrible Oklahoma tornado, so I hardly mentioned it. We were so lucky, how could I even complain. Everybody was safe.

Listening to David while I was driving home was the most soothing thing. And it’s not the first time he’s gotten me through a storm. Snowstorms and other storms life sends. This is no small thing.

Thanks for riding with me, David. In your own way.

p.s I found out the next day that there had been 6 verified tornadoes in the vicinity. Lots of property damage but no serious injuries.
