Roses&Thorns

June 8, 2014

Roses to start off this Sunday morning to all of our veterans who fought in any war. You can never give out too much praise especially to those World War II veterans, most of whom are well into their 90s. Hundreds are dying each year. WWII was in the spotlight this past week and deservedly so because of the 70th anniversary of D-Day. It's absolutely pathetic that only 70 percent of college students surveyed knew D-Day was part of WWII. In another survey fewer than half of those taking a multiple choice test knew Franklin Roosevelt was president at the time and 15 percent identified the location of the landing as Pearl Harbor, not beaches named Utah and Omaha. Pearl Harbor for crying out loud! Can you believe that? Why is our history being phased out of classrooms? Are our kids even being taught about the great World War? Let's not forget that this Saturday is Flag Day. Show your true colors. Make sure your kids and grandkids do too.
