Bringing Acupuncture Mainstream – One Talk at a Time
For your convenience, I’ve provided a round up of this week’s posts at the end of this commentary. We’re working on getting off the ground – One step at a time.
Thought for Today – Don’t Take Your Freedoms for Granted
I happen to run across an interview of Major Dick Winters, US Army (ret), who served with the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division (WWII).
If his name sounds familiar, he was the central character in the HBO series “Band of Brothers” and author of the autobiography “Beyond Band of Brothers”, which I had the pleasure of reading recently.
During an interview he was asked to describe the liberation of the City of Eindhoven, Netherlands, in September of 1944.
To paraphrase his answer, he said, “It was unexpected and a party like you’ve never seen before.” Major Winters continued to explain his solemn point for citizens of a free society: Our Rights, our core freedoms we have in the United States were all freedoms that the liberated people in Eindhoven had stripped away by the occupying Nazi forces. Having suffered at the hands of their occupiers for seven long years, they did not know if they were ever going to have those freedoms again.
The takeaway points are…
Whatever you are trying to accomplish or problems you must face – Just something for you to think about the next time the going gets tough – don’t sweat the small stuff.
The other point is, don’t take your freedoms for granted. They were paid for with a very high price and they need to be protected and respected.
