Merci


I was watching The movie "saints and soldiers" this week. Such a reminder for me of soldiers who sacrificed their lives so I can have freedom.
When the American army delivered Paris, my Grand-Pa was in jail for talking too much politics (I must have that in my blood. Very opinionated and not ashamed of it)
He had lost all his hair and teeth. My Grand-Ma and her Mom had been starving.
This memorial day let's not forget why all those man died. 
Merci
