This is a salute, and memorial for ALL the PEOPLE who suffered, fought and/or died during the WORLD WARS. This is an opportunity to recognise and grieve the sacrifices that our forebearers suffered to grant us our present comforts. An opportunity to grieve the waste of our humanity. To my Grandad: Thankyou for teaching me that my enemy is my family, but for political cicumstance. Thankyou for......i can't continue....
Thank you for showing me that, as a human I must by nature belong to a 'tribe'. Thank you for showing me that I must belong for sake of belonging. Thank you for explaining that I am capeable of horrible things. Thank you for teaching me that doing horrible things will make me feel horrible all my life. I forgive you for your fear. I will try very hard to understand other tribes. I am free because of your sacrifice. I will give my life for you. I will NOT let that horrible thing happen again-I promice.
I'm watching a Christian cerimony in recognition of those lost their lives for us on D day. There are many veterans there, sweeped by camereas. There's a priest talking about ..?.. The Queen of England has layed a wreath in a graveyard of 4000. Now there're singing hims. Good band! I'm not Anglican, nor Catholic, nor Buhdist, nor Islam, nor Judea, nor......... I appreciate the cerimony and think of my Grandad and his commerads. It's all very nice. Have we not learned that war is a shame on humanity itself? No great brass band, priest, queen can begin to forgive us of our great 'sin'. The cerimonies validate our rememberance, but do the speaches and pomp forgive us? Do these rituals simply give us solice from our transgressions against humanity? Thankyour Grandad for your candid teaching. Please forgive us for our proposed aggresion????????????????
RESPECT THE DEAD!
I didn't make it!
Ever heard of an edit button? Respect those who died to defend our freedom. I wish the rest of the kids in America weren't so stupid so they could appreciate what these people have done for us.
They will never be forgotten.
P.S You stole my thread! lol
Irrelevant, I am appauled by you immature and pathetic remark about American youth not being able to apreciate what was sacrificed on the beaches of Normandy 60 years ago, I myself am 17, and an American, and I very well understand the strugle the put forth to ensure that future generations of people world wide would be able to enjoy living in a free environment, and so my respects to those men who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and my sympathies to the family and close friends of Ronal Reagen.
