Tammy posted the link to a nice story about a 91 yr old lady who served as an intelligence operative and Blechley Park Codebreaker.
I grew up at that age where my friends dads and uncles were all War vets and so we all grew up playing with plastic 'army guys' and drawing tanks and airplanes… you get it.
There was a very interesting quote from the article's subject, Sigrid Green which dealt with the amazing things ordinary people do in exraordinary times. Here it is: 'During the war thousands of people did extraordinary things they never dreamed they could do. Some more than others, but that’s life.'
Life presents normal people with challenges. In our time, we aren't being bombed or shot at or threatened with concentration camps, but we are struggling in a political war of sorts. I see ordinary people acting in extraordinary ways to help preserve a legacy for their children, of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Happy warriors who would otherwise be quite content to be like the gentle Hobbits in their Shire, so to speak.
God Bless Sigrid Green and all like her who in their time did what was needed to do.
God Bless we who struggle to preserve our country.
I love us!
