Default A different Memorial Day thank you

I have always been "into" Irish folk music. About 25 years ago I bought an LP by the Fureys and Davey Arthur. On there was a haunting song - The Green Fields Of France. Every Memorial Day I post it on a forum or two. I now find that they have put it to video which can be found on UTube and Yahoo.

The link to the Yahoo video and song is below. You will need to turn up your sound.

Every time I listen to this song it seems to get dusty in the room.

While it harks back to WWI and tells the story of the Greatest Generation, we should not forget the horrors that all our men and women face in the battlefield - old or new.

Thanks to all of you who have served and who do serve.

Thanks for posting that Menzies.

Like the song says, men are not just “killed“ in war, they are “butchered“. Sorry if that statement offends some, it’s just that the memories hurt deep down.

Now we are in another religious war.....

Read today that the Chinese are expanding thier military, that could lead to an economic war in the future.

The stupidity of folks in this world is really something else.

Hope that your kids never have to go to war.
