Just some thoughts:
On one of our trips south we had the good fortune to visit the WW II museum in New Orleans.
I went not knowing what to expect. But I came away thinking that I had received more than what I had expected.
The museum opened on June 6th, 2000 and originally was known as the National D-Day museum. Shortly there after the name was changed to WW II Museum. It is located in the central business district of the city of New Orleans. It gives emphasis to the American efforts in WW II. I recommend it to all.
One of my favorite authors Stephen Ambrose ( Band of Brothers) was instrumental in the museum coming about.
I like something I read there speaking of a country and its history:
“We all our the custodians of our country’s history.”
I guess the question is: “What do we choose to do with it?”
You know we also our custodians of our families history. Likewise the question: “What do we choose to do with it?”
It is said a person dies two deaths. One, when they die and two, when those that knew them allow their memory to be forgotten. Same can be said for a country and what people allow to happen to its history.
