Just Kids

December 7, 2012

After high school, Darrell Blizzard left the orphanage where he grew up to join the US Army Air Corps. World War II was in full swing, and soon he faced responsibilities usually given to older and more experienced men. He told a reporter years later that a four-mule plow team was the biggest thing he’d driven before he became the pilot of a four-engine B-17. Now in his late eighties, he said, “We were all just kids flying those things.”

In the Bible, we find accounts of many people who followed God courageously when they were young. In a situation of corrupt spiritual leadership, “Samuel ministered before the Lord, even as a child” (1 Sam. 2:18). David faced the giant Goliath in spite of being told, “You are not able to go against this Philistine . . . for you are a youth” (17:33). Mary, the mother of Jesus, was most likely very young when she was told she would bear the Son of God. She responded to the angel’s announcement by saying, “Let it be to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). Paul told the young pastor Timothy, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers” (1 Tim. 4:12).

God values each one in His family. In His strength, the young can be bold in their faith, while those who are older can encourage those who are “just kids.”

O Lord of all the upward road,
Keep strong our youth, we pray;
May age and youth together seek
To follow in Thy way. —Niedermeyer
Encouraging the young should never become old.

Read: 1 Timothy 4:9-16

Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers. —1 Timothy 4:12
Bible in a Year:
1 Thessalonians 1-5

Remember Pearl Harbor.

Every time I have been to Pearl Harbor, I have seen stunned and appalled Japanese tourists coming out of the theater after having seen the excellent documentary that is provided at the Visitors’ Center. The apparently had NO IDEA that their Emperor and government had committed this heinous, sneaky, and dishonorable attack.

It is a very important lesson for all of us. What children are taught in school becomes their world view. If they are taught propaganda or false history, that is what they believe is the truth.

The tears of remorse, disbelief, and shame on the tourists’ faces were genuine, but they were more upset that they had been fed a pack of lies their whole lives and didn’t realize it till that moment. Betrayal is a horrible thing.

"The Girl Can't Help It" isn't really a Christmas movie, but some of the action takes place at Christmas time. It is the story of a has-been gangster who teams up with a down-and-out theatrical agent to make his girlfriend a singing star, despite the fact that she is musically talentless. At one point, the gangster discloses that he has written some songs while in prison, including a Christmas carol entitled, "No Lights on the Christmas Tree, Mama--They're Using the Electric Chair Tonight."

Songs featured in the film include:

Imagine if the children of the mid-east were taught the truth....

And I worry about what kids today are being taught. And where would we adults be if we only had access to the alphabet tv stations...so many lies and half truths. Good evening, ML...((HUGS))...lots of lessons today?

My Dad was a WW II vet. He’s been gone for some years now but I always think of him on this day. Pearl Harbor Day was very important to him. It’s good that people still remember what a milestone that day was in our history.

BAND OF BROTHERS

WORLD WAR II


Members of the 101st Airborne, June 7, 1944 at Ste.Marie du Mont, France

"This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, "To-morrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."

KOREA

Members of the "Chosin Few", 1st Marine Division, December 1950


"Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered."

VIETNAM

FMF Corpsman D. R. Howe treats the wounds of Pfc. D. A. Crum, "H" Company, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, during Operation Hue City.


"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

AFGHANISTAN

Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division in action, Afghanistan, 2011


"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let it pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as does a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean."

(Henry V, Act IV, Scene iii)


THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY GOES ON,
AS IT HAS FROM TIMES IMMEMORIAL.
THE BAND OF BROTHERS STILL STANDS FAST IN THE BREACH!

They have our six!

Honor them for their Service and Sacrifice!
