The Liberation of Europe, WWII
104,366 American Lives Sacrificed to Liberate Europe

The Silence About six miles from Maastricht, in the Netherlands, lie buried 8,301 American soldiers who died in "Operation Market Garden" in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall winter of 1944-. Every one of the men buried in the cemetery, as well as those in the Canadian and British military cemeteries, has been adopted by a Dutch family who mind the grave, decorate it, and keep alive the memory of the soldier they have adopted. It is even the custom to keep a portrait of "their" American soldier in a place of honor in their home. Annually, on "Liberation Day," memorial services are held for "the men who died to liberate Holland." The day concludes with a concert. The final piece is always "Il Silenzio," a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch and first played in 1965 on the 20th anniversary of Holland's liberation. It has been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since.

This year the soloist was a 13-year-old Dutch girl, Melissa Venema, backed by André Rieu and his orchestra (the Royal Orchestra of the Netherlands). This beautiful concert piece is based upon the original version of taps and was composed by Italian composer Nino Rossi. The Silence

Faith in God
At Kids' Wings, we are concerned with the deterioriating condition of the character in our country. Traditional values and standards are under attack by a few and suggest disintegrating ideals to our youngsters.

We pledge allegiance to ONE NATION UNDER GOD! We carry money that states IN GOD WE TRUST! Why, then, is His name so often treated as the enemy in our classrooms? Why are we more likely to hear His name used in cursing than in reverence? When we waver in our allegiance and our trust, we weaken our country's foundation. It is NOT illegal to say God's name in our classrooms; yet, that is the message our children are getting.

If the character of our country's kids seems to be getting lost, someone is forgetting to give them direction! The main direction is UP.... We're doing it to ourselves!

Take God from our Pledge of Allegiance? Not on our watch!  We ARE ONE NATION ONLY as long as we remain UNDER GOD!  

Resolution from the Texas State Board of Education
