Lest we forget

This past Memorial Day, we had a wreath laying ceremony at our local Parish cemetery. Two active duty Marines came is dress uniform to pay honor to those men and women who gave their lives in service to our country.

Walking through the cemetery afterwards, I noticed numerous grave markers for Veterans of WWII who have passed away. There were so many!  The "Greatest Generation" is disappearing before our eyes!

This coming Saturday is June 6th - the 71st Anniversary of D-Day and the beginning of the liberation of Europe from Nazi tyranny. I found this video on YouTube and wanted to share it. The young man in this video was obviously brought up by two loving and caring parents who passed on some pretty good values.

May we never forget, because if we forget our history, we will be doomed into repeating it - and may we always value and defend our God given rights to freedom and liberty, everywhere.
