In Memoriam

I had jokes published for today. Then I received this. I'll re-post the jokes later, this needs to be seen.

60 years after WWII

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it's powerful.

We cannot, we must not, ever forget what happened in Europe over 60 years ago, because it could happen again. Anyone, any group, could be the target. It has been said that those who refuse to study history are doomed to repeat it. In this case, those who are attempting to rewrite history are probably planning to repeat it! The hatred is already there, in place, taught to the children from infancy, with promises of glory and honor to those who carry out the plans.

In Memoriam

The Non Sequitur Home Page

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. I recieved this in e-mail. It has been sent sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 6,000,000 (six million) Jews, 20,000,000 (twenty million) Russians, 10,000,000 (ten million) Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russia peoples looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

The Islamic extremists are bent on the same thing that Hitler and Stalin were. The conquest of the world and the destruction of anyone who doesn't believe the way they do. The rest of the Muslims who say or do nothing about them are as guilty as the extremists.

dnr..several years ago, one of our patients still had that little tattoo on his forearm. I have never forgotten it, nor will I ever.
Even after all of those years had passed for him, he was still so fearful, and mistrustful of everyone, but he, for some reason liked me and trusted me, and always wanted to have me take care of everything when he came in.

Who knows what horror he experienced, and what loss? I pray that something like that never, ever, happens again..to anyone.

Let's not forget all the homosexuals(gay wasn't applied then) and gypsies that Hitler's Master Plan tortured and brutally killed. The small babies and children that were barbarically medically researched upon. It is a frightening legacy that we in Europe live with and I pray stays just enough in all our memories to ensure that future generations understand why we must fight, with all our might,to ensure that this never ever happens again.

To think, Hitler's Master Plan to produce a super race of Ayrian super strength and intellect housed in strapping blonde blue eyed bodies was a driving reality

This is all very sobering

This is very true. War is an awful tool that should be used only when absolutely necessary, but it is still useful when faced with people bent on the destruction of an entire race. Such as WWII era Germany and certain nations in the middle east today.
