THE WORLD GONE MAD

Reading the paper it is seems quite sad
The leader of Iran – has he gone quite mad?
He rants that there never was a holocaust!
He’ll get the Atomic Bomb whatever the cost!

North Koreans and Russians are helping him
To bring the end of our world to the dangerous brim
In Canada on Fridays many of us wear red
To honour our fighting men who are dead!

Red honours and supports our Canadian men
Who are fighting in Afghanistan for freedom again
Daily we see Iran’s rants on the CNN news
About a madman who wants to destroy the Jews!

Let us all try together to support our troops
The young and the brave in their combat boots
Until 2009 when it’s the end of our lease
Let Canadians continue to pray for world peace!

Author’s Note: I received the below from Peacekeeping Veteran Hugh Message – he asked that I pass it on so I wrote a short rant to accompany the good efforts of Cheryl who spreads the word about Red Fridays

I have used this before, to remind us all of when the world went mad. We needed our armed forces then and we need them now. Wear red today – shoulder to shoulder we send a strong message of unity and support for our troops.

O Canada

Sixty Years After WW II

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it’s powerful. Then read the comments at the end, and please – pass on the message! We cannot, we must not, ever forget what happened in Europe over 60 years ago, because it could happen again. Anyone, any group, could be the target. It has been said that those who refuse to study history are doomed to repeat it. In this case, those who are attempting to rewrite history are probably planning to repeat it! The hatred is already there, in place, taught to the children from infancy, with promises of glory and honour to those who carry out the plans. Forewarned is forearmed, and I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message. I hope you’ll do the same.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This article is in memory of the 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1, 900 Catholic priests, who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved, and humiliated with the German and Russia peoples looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth, ‘ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

The Islamic extremists are bent on the same thing that Hitler and Stalin were. The conquest of the world and the destruction of anyone who doesn’t believe the way they do. The rest of the Muslims who say or do nothing about them are as guilty as the extremist.
