Lest We Forget

I am always moved by Remembrance Day.  My husband has a nephew who has served in Afghanistan on two tours and one of those tours was a result of his having to fill in for a good friend of his that was killed while serving there.

I say this clip on Stacy's blog (Twinshappy) and loved it so much I want to share it with you.


In addition, Amy Ramsy (Prairie Paper and Ink) posted this link to a Snoops article (so you know it's true) on a fabulous thing a teacher has done in her classroom to bring light to the freedoms we have due to the sacrifices made by those who have fought for our freedom.  Can't copy it over so you have to check it out here on your own.   Wish I was a teacher so I could do this in my classroom!  Think I may have to pass it along to a few teachers at our school in the event they want to use it :)

To all who have fought for our freedom and those who are presently serving your country to defend their freedom, THANK YOU!!

What a powerful video! I had tears in my eyes the whole time. A wonderful tribute to our soldiers and supporters. Thanks, Marissa for posting this!

Didn't have time to check the clip yet, but I will. DH is on the phone with his dad right now... WWII Veteran.. very enlightening. Was with the paratroopers {very different from today}!! The paratroopers flew in on gliders etc. etc. no high-altitude parachutes then.
