With Christmas only a few days away we will be enjoying our loved ones and friends.
Good food will be served, hugs will be exchanged, good wishes between friends and family.
Now is also the time for us to remember our service people that are serving in far off lands.
They will not be with their family, friends or loved ones. They will be there for us doing a job that few of us have any idea of the sacrifice they endure.
January 2006, Fallujah, Iraq. Lance Corporal Brett Lundstrom, American, Lakota, Marine was killed in action.
I picked the video of his wake by the Lakota people because it seemed speak to all of us. The history of his family that all served in the Military. The strong cultural bonds of the Lakota people. Seven years seem like a very long time, but to Brett Lundstrom family it's yesterday.
The song ''Amazing Grace'' is played on a Native American flute and is haunting as it is beautiful.
CoH applies as do the three B's. Be respectful. Be on-topic or BE GONE.
