June 6, 1944
I am a reader! What I read is about WWII. I am not sure how it all started but I have found that time period fascinating. I wonder if it has anything to do with living next door to our neighbors who came from Germany. They told some stories of their survival living under the Nazi Occupation and it was fairly frightening to a pre-teen.
What is it in people that makes them survive?
What makes people join in on a fight?
After reading many books about the war, the strategies, the people involved, the people of the Holocaust, the POW's caught on both sides of the war I just cannot get my mind around the survival instinct. I can understand the Patriotism but there has to be more....
Would I survive...I highly doubt it.
I do not think I have what it takes.
Would I join in on the fight?
So this is fascinating to me.
So in honor of all those who have fought the fight and those who have survive I am in awe of you!
With that being said I am having a Patriotic Giveaway!!
This 3-D star is my way of showing my patriotism (and it doesn't hurt nor do I have to survive, except living in my car, and kids who need to be here and there)!
It is a 7 1/4 inch Rusty 3-Dimensional Prim style Puffy Star hand painted in a patriotic theme. It has a rusty wire for hanging. It measures 7 ¼ inches from tip to tip (not including the hanger). Raffia and a bit of cloth is tied on the top.
