August 1 in Warsaw

 

Every August 1 at 5 p.m., Warsaw and other cities across Poland come to a stop. 5 p.m. August 1, 1944, marked the start of the Warsaw uprising against the Nazi German occupiers. The Warsaw uprising was the largest rebellion against Nazi Germany during WWII.

The Polish Home Army was trying to liberate Warsaw before Russian forces arrived. Winston Churchill wanted to help the Home Army but Roosevelt did not want to offend Stalin before the Yalta Conference. Stalin had no intention of coming to the aid of the Home Army. Eventually, aid did come from Britain and the United States, but too late to win the battle.

Never Forget

 

For those of us who despair that our young people have been indoctrinated to hate America, there is hope.

In this article in The Federalist, we learn that students all over the country on college campuses are planting our flag to commemorate the tragedy of 9/11. In spite of efforts by the Left to downplay this holiday, and blaming America for its occurrence, students at more than 200 schools are letting the world know the importance of this calamity, and that it is worth commemorating. Those students know that Islamic terrorism is still a threat, and that we need to remember those who lost their lives to its horrors on 9/11.

I’m grateful that these students have chosen to never forget.

Where were you 15 years ago? It seems so unlikely that the Islamic terrorist attacks that forever changed the world happened so long ago. After that Tuesday, I remember seeing signs of “United we Stand,” “God Bless America,” “Never Forget.” Have we forgotten what happened and its impact? Have we forgotten the 2, 977 souls […]
