The Vigil

Presented without comment as anything I could say would be grossly insufficient.

Well done, young man.
For a Man you are.

Honor calls to honor, even across the sands of time.

Thank you for posting this. I would hate to have missed it.

I just put the link to this video on the Sarah Palin Channel, with H/T to VC. Thank you for posting it. As I said there, I think it is the most uplifting thing I have seen in a year, and it gives me hope for America.

God bless that dad, too, who helped him pay his respects.

A monumental tribute to perhaps the greatest undertaking that men had ever subjected themselves to. I am never so moved as in June when imagining what had happened on D-day. I still can’t fathom it – how do you get men to do that? On the other hand, it also brings to mind the great waste of lives in all our misadventures since then. Who will remember those who gave their lives and bodies for nothing but political gambits and showy flexing and posturing? For the moments that warrant everlasting tribute though, it’s good to have a youngster with the gift of discernment remind everyone – lest we forget.
