Heroes

November 13, 2008

I have nothing deep and meaningful so instead I’ll leave you with this, from my friend Matthew’s facebook status on Remembrance Day.

A world that does not honor its heroes does not understand its liberty.

That seems about right.

  1. Hmm… That’s a bit harder here. Remeberance day is pretty muted, as if no-one really knows how to deal with it.


  2. I hear you Andy. One of my profs from Augustine is married to a german lady. She talked about losing her brother in the Second World War, I thought it was sad that she lost her brother on the frontline but she couldn’t be proud of his sacrifice.

    The first world war is a whole other story, there was no good guy in that war. Is that overshadowed by World War II though?
