    SILENZIO’…BEAUTIFUL & HAUNTING tribute to the spirit of the American people

    Please read, listen to “SILENZIO”, and think about the fool who has apologized for our American arrogance. Very moving and beautiful. So good to know that there are still some that honor the sacrifices that were made for them by the men and women of our country.

    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 aDutch 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 ofhonor 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 Dutchgirl, Melissa Venema, backed by André Rieuand 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.

    Remind those of our sacrifice and don’t confuse arrogance with leadership. The count is 104,366 dead, brave Americans.

    And we have to watch an American elected leader who apologizes to Europe and the Middle East that our country is “arrogant”!

    HOW MANY FRENCH, DUTCH, ITALIANS, BELGIANS AND BRITS ARE BURIED ON OUR SOIL… AFTER DEFENDING US AGAINST OUR ENEMIES?

    WE DON’T ASK FOR PRAISE…BUT WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE!

    Americans, forward it! Non-patriotic, delete it!
    Most of the protected don’t understand it.
    DO THINK ABOUT THIS. THANK YOU

    IN GOD WE TRUST
