Remembrance Day

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 11, 2012, 3:36 AM
  • Mood: Love
I think it would be nice if we all took a moment to remember all those who have been lost in war over the years, and the families that have been left behind.

This is a painting that I have done, in tribute to them.

My great great grandfather was trained on the bazooka in WWII and he was one of the brave soldiers who fought on the beach at D-Day. There was a german sniper in a tower and every time the platoon commander would try to take him out, the sniper just shot whoever was sent. So the platoon commander told my great great grandfather to get him with the bazooka. So he did. Once the tower was shot, they sent a runner. The runner ran and made it ok so they knew the sniper was killed. My great great grandfather went up the tower and saw the sniper, dead, and with his helmet off. And in the helmet was a picture of the sniper, his wife, and his children. My great great grandfather grew up without a father and knew what he had done to that family when he shot that bazooka. He left that woman a widow, and those children fatherless. What I want to say is whether you belive in war or not, veterans need to be recognized and thanked. They went through things, and did things for our country that most people arent strong enough to do. I know Im not. They are brave and selfless. They have gained my respect and I am very thankful for them. Same goes for the men and women who are active duty now. I respect and stand behind our military. I also thank military families. They are brave and its rare that they get thank you's when they deserve them. So thank you military.

My grandfather spent 2 years jailed in Hannover (Germany) during the 2nd World War. All prisoners were starved and forced to do hard labor. When the allies invaded Germany, he was freed along with the others and could come back home safely. When he still lived, he used to tell me about those hard times: so many people died right before his eyes, and even after all those years he still cried when he talked about them.

:painter: Yes, I don't think people realise the scars that are left, even on those that survive. My father survived the whole of the Second World War, but had nightmares for the rest of his life. :airborne:

Thinking about that makes me shiver, even though I've never experienced the horrors of a war.
