Death and Freedom at Anzio 1944
Public funds are so much better spent on war memorial cemeteries like this one in Italy commemorating the deaths of over 10,000 American soldiers than on Rock-n-Roll museums or fecal "art" on display at tax payer expence at American art galleries. The Sicily-Roma war cemetery, memorializing the combat dead of January 1944, is profoundly beautiful and profoundly moving. A sobering reminder of the futility and emptiness of sin, and the unrelenting trouble sin causes in the world, perhaps no where seen in its aggregate ugliness than in war. "O quickly come, dread Judge of all." I long for the day when swords are beaten into plowshares, when the enemies of Christ and his kingdom are finally defeated, and the Prince of Peace brings true freedom and eternal rest to his beloved church.
