"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12



“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

More than 60 years later...




(click on the cartoon to enlarge)


In memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved, tortured and humiliated.

We must never forget.

I'd like to say I can handel this, but this has always been hard for me to face. That Cartoon, holy smokes~ I have been tormented ever since I read the Diary of Anne Frank. Thank you for spreading this message, those people suffered in ways I cannot wrap my mind about. Now I pray History doesn't repeat it's self

This was a touching post, Ohilda. Thank you. One of my closest friends in high school was the daughter of two survivors... they both were the only surviving members of their families due to the Holocaust.

Wow, thanks for that reminder, Ohilda. Each one of those numbers represents a LIFE, a FAMILY, a CHILD OF GOD!
I have been catching up and I'm so sorry for all the mess you went through earlier. I'm thankful the Lord resolved it all in your favor; I am sure it built and strengthened your faith to walk through that fire.
You are a wonderful mother, wife, prayer warrior, and friend! And on top of all that--your blog looks GREAT!
Love you girl!

I truly don't know how we ever could forget.... and yet, I am amazed at how some try.
