France: The Cost of Liberation


Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
Ronald Reagan

The cost of regaining freedom was enormous. Paid for by thousands of American, British, Canadian and Free French soldiers, sailors and airman.

    Today in France we see a repeat in a new generation. Pride has taken over and history is bound to repeat itself in a more destructive path then before. The generation of witness has failed not only in France but is also failing in many countries and this this includes the USA. A difficult thing to watch. Thank goodness those who know the truth put little faith in the politicians to solve our future but put their faith in Yeshua.

    • “The generation of witness has failed … ” I disagree Ron. The failure is not on the ‘generation of witnesses’, rather in those who refuse to look at what the witnesses have left behind.

  2. Further to my last Ron — it’s not only that they refuse to look at the past, but they seem to be defining history to be confined to their own lifetime.

    In the Old Testament book of Joshua (Chapters 3&4), there is a description of the Israelites crossing the Jordan river as it dried up before them. Mind you, at this time of year the river was at flood stage, and yet they crossed over on dry land. As a memorial to that event and what God had done for them, Joshua commanded the people to make a memorial of stones.
    Yet we see later in the book of Judges (Chapter 2) that following the death of Joshua and his generation that “After them another generation rose up who did not know the Lord or the works He had done for Israel.”

    I do not want to come up short in leaving a remembrance of my generation.
