Amazing and very, very sad statistic I heard today.  World War 2 veterans.  One dies every 90 seconds.  God bless them all for their bravery and service.  Young men going off to war .. only the fittest can go ... they leave behind the rest of us who are old, unfit, too young, all sorts of characteristics that take the young from us.... to fight for our freedom.  Now they are old, sick, tired, and often forgotten.  The old classic movie I watched last night was called "Enchantment" and it starred David Niven.  If you have a chance to see it ... you will enjoy it I'm sure as I did.  He was young and going off to war ... and it was his life story .... leaving behind the girl he loved .......  the last sentence at the end of the movie said Life Never Ends... it just continues through from the Past to the Future .... family beginnings, losses, experiences, deaths and children to carry on the name and the endeavour.
