Remember My Forgotten Man

This song, timeless and yet timely, written in 1933 by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and updated recently with a photo montage by a creative person on YouTube who styles herself as Solitaire11 seems almost as timely now as it was when it was produced in 1933. Hopefully some folks will find it comforting. Because we’ve been here before.

Monique I was shocked at the person who called you a smelly French person because of your accent. If any readers are reading this comment, I know Monique and she's as patriotic an American as you'll find. And she understands that the right to protest often means a duty to protest and lives by that standard.

But go watch the first video on her website. I'm so ashamed at those people who insulted you like that. People like that red shirted woman are the kind of Americans who make me so ashamed to live here.

And thanks for letting us know about your blog. I knew you had a website, but I didn't know you had started a blog. But I'm glad to see you blogging.

And I hope the song meant something to you. I know your Dad died fighting the Nazis when you were just a small child. Gone but not forgotten - at least by some of us who understand what they were fighting against. It's tough dealing with the fact that we have so many fascists living right herein America. And scary.
