The Greatest Generation…Do We deserve Their Sacrifice ?
When I watch the news these days, all I see, are college kids protesting, rioting and in general, causing mayhem and I wonder….did the “Greatest Generation” sacrifice too much ?
The video below asks that very question, in it, a former US Navy SEAL, Dom Raso, talks about the horrific sacrifices made by tens of thousands of brave young men during World War II. We now know those brave men and women who served then, are known as: “The Greatest Generation”. After the Attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7th, 1941, thousands of men willingly signed their life away, so that America could be free of tyranny.
Raso asks the question: “Did that generation make things too safe and too comfortable that we are willingly giving that freedom away?”. All one has to do, is turn on their televisions, or computers and they’ll see chaos and utter mayhem and all committed, by the great grandchildren of those who served between 1941 to 1945. If my Grandfather were still alive, he would weep if he saw what has happened to our great nation.
I leave you with this quote from Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”.
