WORLD WAR 2 POSTERS

I know some of you are too young to recall these posters and WWII, but they were a part of my life and others who are now "older than dirt". These are great. I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking. I got a lump in my throat when I read this. I "grew up" thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way! I am glad to see that somebody saved them. The statement at the end says it all!

"IN GOD WE TRUST"

~ These were our parents ~

What in God's name have we let happen ?

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these !

Whatever happened?

It's called...............................

Political correctness (or "re-education") happened,

Lack of God's name happened,

Lack of personal responsibility happened,

Lack of personal integrity and honesty happened,

Lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened,

Lack of being an American happened.

Did all of these things die along with common sense ?!?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I for one am still proud to be an American!

"WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD"

************************************"

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.

The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety,

is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill
