Sometimes I can’t shake the feeling that we live in a messy world. So much going on. School shootings, wars, pollution. And we are in the middle of all of that. Maybe we are paying attention to all of it. Maybe we are ignoring it. Maybe it is not getting to us because it’s not our family that got blown up. maybe it’s because the school where the mass shooting happened is not even close to where we live. And maybe our beach looks pristine and clean.
One of the most important things to teach our kids is what happened in WWII, most importantly in regards to the Holocaust. The horror this part of our history has put on so many families can most likely never benn understood entirely by someone not involved. Neither can the fact that people are actually capable of actions as horrific as the ones back then.
How can you possibly explain while you, yourself have no explanation. I guess by telling your kids about it and letting them know that you can’t explain the why and how… most important lesson: Let’s never forget about it and make sure history won’t repeat itself…
I’ve read somewhere that it is “Thank A Veteran Day” today. I’m not sure if that is really the case, but you know what? It really doesn’t matter. I’m not a fan of war. I’m not a fan of going out there shooting people. But that the sad part is that there is war. And unfortunately there are some pretty crazy people out there who manage to go completely nuts and actually make the rest of the world feel the need to step up and do something against them. In those cases that means war.
So to all of those who go out there or who went out there to protect the freedom of everyone else: Thank you! I wish you would have not have to do it. I wish you would have not seen what you’ve seen. I wish you would have not had to suffer. Thank you for the sacrifices you made.
And here, as a Blast From The Past, is a post I wrote just about a year ago…

Finally! Another beautiful love story for my feature ‘Couples‘! Isn’t it amazing how people just find together? Thank you so much Becky, from Restart Urgently Needed, for sharing your story with me here. Please head over and check out her blog and her inspiring story of which you’ll catch glimpses here. I believe we all can learn from her experience.
