I spent the morning exploring unmarked and, without some guide as to what transpired there, apparently unremarkable sites of American heroism, separated by a largely stalemated few months, at Monte Artemisio and Isola Bella. This was followed by the Commonwealth War Cemetery at Anzio and the American Military Cemetery Sicily-Rome at Nettuno.
I could not help but hold in my heart our recently fallen heroes, their comrades and their families. Before becoming the father of two boys I had been to Normandy’s resting place several times, then others at Luxembourg, Cassino and elsewhere, always deeply moving. Today, seeing the facade’s image of a fallen, broken young man was just more than I could handle gracefully (fourth photo on the home page; I don’t know Mac enough to know how to ‘right click’ for properties).
I don’t know how to sufficiently honor the sacrifices of our troops and their families. But it doesn’t hurt to keep trying, especially when we are reminded of their courage, and loss.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
