Thank You To World War II Vets
I know I am a little early for Memorial Day, but I received this in an e-mail from a friend this morning and thought I would post it now. The makers of the film are trying to get 5,000 people to view the trailer by Memorial day. The trailer is only a little over two minutes, but is a powerful reminder of what, not just World War II vets have done for us, but all veterans.
The project involves finding as many living World War II vets as possible and sending them,free of charge, to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
There was no way to embed the video from the project's site, but you can follow the link to view it. (I don't think embedding it from YouTube would add to the count of viewers.)
View it then pass it on. Let us always remember to thank those who selflessly fight for our freedom, and let us thank God for them as well.
Here is the link for the trailer.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
