A reminder of the cost of freedom, a podcast reccy

D-Day was 75 years ago on June 6th. Several combat veterans share their World War II experiences on the Ben Shapiro show.

How many of you have lucky 18-year-olds psyching themselves up for college instead of jumping out of a plane or storming onto a beach under heavy fire? Imagining my husband or my brother in those situations is…difficult. I can’t even think about my children there. Thousands of families lived with war and war-related losses then and now.

Today, we have so much to be thankful for. Listening to these survivors talk about the human cost of words and ideas is a history education not to be missed.

It’s also another reason the United States cannot impose democracy and freedom on others using military might. A people must be willing to bleed and die for a better life. They have to want this idea of freedom more than anything. It cannot be given to them.

Note:

You may have noticed I do not usually mention the podcast name or host. My reason is to present the topic without distracting preconceived notions.

Thank you for keeping an open mind.
