Generally in Europe we (Americans) are known as people who want to help.
When In Europe this past year, I lived with various families along the way. They all were very appreciative of what the United States did for them in WWII.In ST.Lo, France I stayed with a French Doctorâ€™s family which had a US flag hanging out their front door entrance so the front porch light would shine on it at night.
Generally most people I associated with tried to keep the politics out of the conversations. Generally what you see via the news media is the minority of the people in Europe.
Most of the free world is very envious of us (Americans) of our freedom. Not just freedoms to do as we choose, but freedom of land ownership and choose where we work and live.
In my own mind, I wonder how much that freedom is going to cost us without some help from other countries.
In France the US Army 29th infantry Division was there to honor the veterans of D-day. It was announced during the ceremonies the Division was leaving for Iraq after its tour with the WWII veterans.
When the 29th Division marched throughout all the towns of Normandie and including Paris, France all you saw was cheers and waving with all five fingers.
Jack, I wonder if those people at Normandie + 60 years all agreed with their government that the US was the bad guy in the recent fracas?
I guess it goes back to what an old farmer said to me once; â€œbelieve nothing of what you hear and half of what you seeâ€
I thought I could â€œback doorâ€ into ofoto and post pictures. It worked for about a half hour and stopped. I guess Iâ€™ll have to spend a couple bucks and try picture trail if I want to post pictures.
