Chris' Corner: 11/11 11:00 Its a pittance of time... May we never forget

11/11 11:00 Its a pittance of time... May we never forget

I have seen many tributes to the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

I find the emotions evoked in this song so strong, so powerful...

two minutes, its a pittance of time, lest we forget... to borrow words from this tribute of song by Terry Kelly ...

Thank you. It is powerful and true.  It is so easy, especially now that we have a strictly volunteer armed forces, to go about our lives without a thought to the men and women who serve.  We can all serve here at home by practicing the peaceful co-operation with each other that we were granted by these service members.  Blessed are the peacemakers.

Hello Chris, thanks for posting this video. I'm not a violent fellow, but I really wanted to punch that guy.

It is too bad that they don't teach and show this in school anymore. We are forgetting our past and the great folks of that generation.
