“That all men are created equal; that we, the People can form a more perfect union. … The capacity to shape our own destiny. That’s why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues will always fail in the end.”
Goodbye, Mr. President. 🙁
Brigadier-Général Guy Chapelaine, Chaplain General: “Ocean to ocean. We come from different backgrounds, from different religions and traditions. But we are first and foremost united in our duty to remember. … May we continue to build the nation where our differences are embrace as strength. Where our workplaces are free from harassment and discrimination. And where we are resolved to see the wellbeing of all peoples who made this land home as well as all those who have made this land both home and place of refuge.” “… The extraordinary price paid in flesh and blood may finally bring about that day when all people of every nation might enjoy the piece and freedom that you wish for all creation. This is what we asked of you, dear Lord.”
Rest in peace, Leonard Cohen. My heart is half empty. The other half is filled with your music.
Thank you to all the soldiers, the heroes that died so we can live in a free Europe. In Europe without hate against any etnicity. Let’s remember and never allow this again.
This should be a matter of course. US army is the biggest army in the NATO alliance. They saved us once. Sadly we have to raise our voice against those of whom democracy and freedom is not in their own interest. 25 years after the revolution.
