  7. I am just looking forward to the day when there are no living veterans, which will mean no wars for three generations, and that obviously is never going to happen. We never learn and as soon as one war winds down we embark on another.

    1. I couldn’t have said it better KL. And so caring for you to wish your students on this sacred day. Our young need to be gently reminded that their life today was forged by our Veterans.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
