Subject: SHALL WE HIRE A MONUMENT ENGRAVER TO GO TO
ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY AND ADD THE MISSING WORDS?


RE: THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM AN APPALLED WWII SITE OBSERVER:

Today I went to visit the new World War II Memorial in Washington,DC.
I got an unexpected history lesson. Because I'm a baby boomer,
I was one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my parents,
Veterans of 'the greatest war,' with their families. It was a beautiful day,
and people were smiling and happy to be there. Hundreds of us milled
around the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eisenhower and Truman
that are engraved there.

On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read the words
President Roosevelt used to announce the attack on Pearl Harbor :

'Yesterday, December 7, 1941--a date which will live in infamy--
the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked.'

One elderly woman read the words aloud:

'With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding
determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph.'

-

But as she read, she was suddenly turned angry. 'Wait a minute,' she said,
'they left out the end of the quote. They left out the most important part.
Roosevelt ended the message with -

'so help us God.'


Her husband said, 'You are probably right. We're not supposed to say things like that now.'


'I know I'm right,' she insisted. 'I remember the speech.' The two looked dismayed,
shook their heads sadly and walked away.

Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself,
'Well, it has been over 50 years; she's probably forgotten.'


But she had not forgotten. She was right...


I went home and pulled out the book my book club is reading ---
'Flags of Our Fathers' by James Bradley.
It's all about the battle at Iwo Jima.

I haven't gotten too far in the book. It's tough to read because
it's a graphic description of the WWII battles in the Pacific.

But right there it was on page 58.Roosevelt's speech to the nation ends in
'so help us God ..'

The people who edited out that part of the speech when they engraved
it on the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the war!
But they couldn't fool the people who were there.

Roosevelt's words are engraved on their hearts.

Now I ask:

'WHO GAVE THEM THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE WORDS OF OUR HISTORY???'

Send this around to your friends. People need to know before everyone forgets.

People today are trying to change the history of America by leaving God
out of it, but the truth is, God has been a part of this nation, since the beginning.
He still wants to be...and He always will be!

If you agree, pass this on and God Bless YOU!

If not, May God Forgive You!

.................................................. ..........................

My Thoughts on this is to make it Right or Don't Do It At All.

Thumbs up Here's the site to review the WWII Memorial

RE: https://www.google.com/search?q=Pict...WknzkTLLo1M%25

Great words but not exactly accurate. To leave off "SO HELP ME GOD" is a crime in itself. Not sure how you guys feel but it's our History and it should be told correctly in behalf of those who served and lost their lives.

Re: If that link doesn' work search for the Word's written on the WWII Memorial. That's what I did.
