I asked a few young folks what Memorial Day meant to them. What were they taught in school about Memorial Day, NONE of them had an answer and it upset me. None were interested in learning about it either, we’re only talking about 8 kids but this seems to be close to the norm.
What the heck are they teaching? I would love to play this for all American youth so that they understand that freedom isn’t free, it was paid for by American blood, American Men and Women gave either some or all, for us to remain free.
In our rush to be ignorant we are raising a generation of people who have no clue, they need to see this video and video’s like it because forgetting History means we will repeat it.
My Grandparents fought the Nazis in Norway when Hitler broke his promise not to invade. Hitler forced Norway's sons to fight for the Nazis or die, they forced almost everyone to work in factories or mines. I grew up proud of them, my Father and my Uncles for being Merchant Marines. As an American I continue to be proud of my Father, Uncles (Army and Marines), Wife (Army), Brother (Marine), Brother-In-Law (Army), Sister-In-Law (Navy) and Nephews (Navy, Army & Marines) for their service knowing that they would give everything (some gave ALL) to keep us free.
Teach your kids about our History, it seems schools focus on the bad, teach them about the good as well because this country does A LOT of GOOD and I’m damn sick to my bones of only hearing about the bad.
Here is the video, it’s worth watching and remembering, they DID fight for all of us. The greatest generation is dying off leaving our schools to teach our kids and they are failing in this, horribly.
