Lest we forget (phrase)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lest_we_forget_(phrase)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The phrase “Lest we forget” is commonly used in war remembrance services and commemorative occasions in English speaking countries, in particular Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day.[1] Before the term was used in reference to soldiers and war, it was first used in an 1897 Christian poem written by Rudyard Kipling called “Recessional”. The phrase occurs eight times; and is repeated at the end of the first four stanzas in order to add particular emphasis regarding the dangers of failing to remember.

‘God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!’

The concept of ‘being careful not to forget’ was already present in the Bible (Deuteronomy 4:7-9):

7″For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for? 8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy son’s sons ….”[2]

This Biblical quote is probably a direct source for the term in the 1897 poem.[according to whom?] This is consistent with the main theme of the “Recessional” poem – that if a nation forgets the true source of its success (the “Lord God of Hosts” and His “ancient sacrifice” of “a humble and contrite heart”) – its military or material possessions will be insufficient in times of war.[citation needed]

The poem “Recessional” also appears as a common hymn at war remembrance services; and the phrase “Lest We Forget” can hence be sung.[3]

The phrase later passed into common usage after World War I across the British Commonwealth, especially becoming linked with Remembrance Day observations; it became a plea not to forget past sacrifices, and was often found as the only wording on war memorials,[4] or used as an epitaph.

Patriots

For The Saluting Marine

Bikers carrying American flags. A United States Marine holding a salute until all of the flags have passed by him. Bikers, a trucker, saluting the Marine. A helmet, weapon and boots representing a fallen member of the United States Armed Forces. Americans standing on the side of the street waving American flags. Yes! Patriots, they are! A patriot, “I am.” God bless the U.S.A.

The Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge Allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with Liberty and Justice for all.

A note about those whom have fallen.

One of the two dog tags that are worn around the neck in combat will be placed on the toe of one whom is fallen, which is for identification purposes. The other tag is returned to the family.

To The Shores Of Tripoli – Fighting Men Of World War II

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 KJV)

Leading the marching Marines in the video is Randolph Scott; he was truly a “man’s man.” Others of that same “man’s man” character are Jack Webb and Clint Eastwood, whom also played key roles in military movies.

To The Shores Of Tripoli was a movie that was made about World War II during the time of that war. The Marines whom are shown in the video are examples of the men which trained and fought for our nation during the second world war. Consider the expertise of the Marines as they march: “3 columns – 23 abreast; “the beat of the drum; the placement of the left foot at the beat of the drum; the ability of the men to make their unified turn without anyone losing marching cadence.” These Marines too, were truly “men’s men.”

World War II was a very critical period of time in our nation’s history, and in that of the world. The Axis Powers of Germany, Japan and Italy had plans to conquer the world for their cause of world domination. Without the entry of the United States military forces into World War II, the objectives of the Axis powers would have been achieved. Consider some of the related facts that are included as a part of this article.

The following link will lead you to an account of the Bataan death march where the Japanese army captured 76,000 Filipinos and Americans. Japanese butchery, disease, exposure to the blazing sun, lack of food, and lack of water took the lives of approximately 5,200 Americans

“Liar!” “Liar!” “Liar!” “Who?”

The Jay Sekulow Band – Liar (Three Dog Night – Cover) She has had no managerial experience to qualify her to lead our nation. Consider her lack of qualification in the following video reports. I think that it is clear that the opening song tells of HRC’s character.

Mother of Benghazi victim responds to latest report

This post came from the one that I published on July 15, 2016. It was while I was watching the news reports of the Muslim who drove his truck over many innocent men, women and children in Nice, France, killing them, including two Americans, that I published that article.

Four Americans were left to die in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012; no U.S. military forces were sent to save them from their attackers, even though the battle lasted for thirteen hours. No one ever knows how long any attack will last; “you never just leave them to die!” Consider the lack of experience and knowledge of Hillary Clinton. Yet, she wants to lead our nation. If she could not protect the lives of those four Americans in Libya, how can we believe that she will be able to protect our nation from increasing Islamic attacks? Hillary’s rise to fame comes from her being married to a President. A lawyer? so what! A senator? No leadership skills needed there. Because she was married to a President; no leadership skills there! Destabilizing foreign countries for BHO! Look at the results in the two articles that can be found at the bottom of this page! There was a song in the 70s, “Four Dead In Ohio! “O-HI-O.” How about, “Four Dead In Benghazi? “BEN-GA-ZEE.” Only, there was no protest against HRC and BHO.
Fake news is famous for taking the side of liberals

Now, let’s consider “O-HI-O”

Consider the following news article from the Chicago Tribune on the HRC and BHO debacle.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-benghazi-hillary-clinton-obama-rhodes-edit-0629-jm-20160628-story.html
“But when packaged as a complete volume, the report delivers on its promise to analyze the entire debacle so the risk of a future disaster is reduced. On the question of how Clinton and the Obama administration reacted, we see more than enough evidence to reaffirm our opinion that the secretary of state failed a crucial chance to show decisive, principled leadership.” (taken from the Chicago Tribune report)

Consider the actions of HRC that led to the destabilizing of Libya.

Before the revolution, Libya was a secure, prospering, secular Islamic country and a critical ally providing intelligence on terrorist activity post–September 11, 2001. Qaddafi was no longer a threat to the United States. Yet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly advocated and succeeded in convincing the administration to support the Libyan rebels with a no-fly zone, intended to prevent a possible humanitarian disaster that turned quickly into all-out war.

Thank you, HRC and BHO.

Billy Graham Memorial Service – Who Was Missing? 2

Who was missing from the Billy Graham memorial service? CNN wasn’t there; neither was MSNBC. C-Span was there, as were Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel. It should be of no surprise that the two liberal cable news and information networks would absent themselves from a memorial service that honored a man who preached the message of the Bible that honors Israel, and speaks against homosexuality, same-sex marriage and abortion on demand. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC support the liberal agenda of the democrat party of using the force of law to allow unborn babies to be killed in the mother’s womb, up until the time of birth. Those liberal networks also support the liberal agenda of the democrat party of using the force of law to force same-sex marriage on America. Those liberal networks oppose the nation of Israel, as does the democrat party; consider the opposition of democrats to moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, with Jerusalem being the capital of Israel. Parents have a responsibility to teach the things of Godly righteousness to their children (Deuteronomy 6:5-7). But, when the “unGodly” reports of the liberal news media are seen in households on a daily basis, the messages against things of God are consumed and are soaked into the minds of those expecting such news reports to be truthful, and not in opposition to the Word of God. Parents are the caretakers of their children. Through their guidance, their children will find their eternity in the Presence of God (Revelation 21:1-2), or in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15).
