Bradley spoke of how 6 boys, 3 of whom died on the Island -- one 24 the rest 17-19 years old -- were revered as heroes, but may not have felt that way with so many more heroes left dead on the Island (real heroes in Bradley's Dad's eyes).
California Yankee concludes:
Suddenly, the monument wasn't just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top. It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero. Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless.I can't add a word, except, Thank you, God.
We need to remember that God created this vast and glorious world for us to live in, freely, but also at great sacrifice. Let us never forget from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf War and all the wars in-between that sacrifice was made for our freedom.
Remember to pray praises for this great country of ours and also pray for those still in murderous unrest around the world. STOP and THANK GOD for being alive and being free at someone else's sacrifice.
