요즘 일때문에 바쁘다고 소홀한 것 같아서 툴툴대고 히스테릭하게 굴었는데 호텔방 에 들어서자마자 그간 툴툴댔던 내 모습들이 주마등처럼 떠올라서 눈물이 났다. 사랑하는 가족들과 고마운 친구들 모두가 하나된 마음으로 우리의 결혼을 축복하는 메시지를 보내주어 시청하는 내내 통곡을 했다.. 아버님 어머님께서 직접 기타치며 개사까지 하여 불러주신, 푸른시절도.. 부끄럼이 많은 우리 아빠가 며칠 전 언니를 몰래 공원에 데려나가길래 무슨일인가 했었는데 공원 한 가운데에서 큰소리로 사랑한다고 노래를 부른 영상도.., 바쁜 와중에 시간내어 영상을 찍어보내준 건후 친구분들과 장소 협찬을 위해 도움주신 건후 친구분, 그리고 옹기종기 둘러앉아 축하 메시지를 보내준 내 친구들 영상도 너무나 진심이 마음 깊이 와닿아 무척이나 고맙고 감사했다..우리 주변에 이렇게 좋은 분들이 많다는 사실에도 마음이 너무 충만해지는 순간이었다. 그리고 누구보다도.. 이 많은 것들을 나 몰래 준비하기 위해 잠도 못자가며 열심히 준비한 건후에게도 너무나 고맙고, 이렇게 좋은 사람을 배우자로 맞이할 수 있다는 사실에도 너무나 감사한 마음이 들었다..!! 감동으로 인해 이렇게나 많은 눈물을 흘릴 수 있다는걸 알게 된 밤.
축하해주셔서 모두들 너무나 감사드립니다..!! 저 오늘 너무 행복해요.
So apparently @tomilahren feels the need to be "cute". Okay, im gonna give you some factual history when it comes to the military, World War II and my Black enlisted Grandad.
Yes, I'm gonna keep it close to home because I can't speak for ALL black men; hell I can't speak for men in general seeing that I am not a man.
@kaepernick7 has stated on MANY occasions that his kneeling down is NOT disrespect towards the military. But, even if his protests were in response to the military, I surely wouldn't be upset because
#1 I am a military Vet
#2 His protests are not only PEACEFUL, it is also his constitutional right.
#3 My Grandad served in the US NAVY during the 30's-40's and through the entire World War II period as an MS (or cook as you may be familiar with in civilian terms) back then, even in the military it wasn't equal and what I do know is that my Granddad served on the USS ARIZONA and was shipped off to Washington DC for land duty days before it was bombed.
While he was in D.C (The American Capital)while still in his Navy uniform, he went into a local cafe to get a meal to eat.
So he sat down for a minute, then the minute turned into several minutes. Still, no one greeted him with not even a simple,
"Hello sir, may I take your order?" Or "Thank you for serving our country"
My Grandad, a black man by culture-considered "colored" during that era-was extremely light, or o light complexion, but still with the features of someone of Non-European descent.
That garnered him a position of "Too much pigment, no service".
Later, a waitress came by-and as described by my Grandad-she seemed embarrassed and ashamed to have to tell him,
"Sorry sir, but we can not serve you"
So as brazen and bold as my Grandad was, he stood up and lectured the ENTIRE CAFE.
"I go to war, FOR YOU
Fight, FOR YOU
I'm out here bustin my ass, serving people food who look like you while out at sea. But when I come home to eat a meal, you won't serve me a God damn meal? You all should feel ashamed. ALL OF YOU!!!" "THEY" (The USA) forgot about black soldiers during BOTH World Wars. So your point is invalid @tomilahren#DDAY#FoodForThought#TakeAKnee#BlackMilitaryLivesMatter#Kaepernick
On June 6th, 1944, after three years of Soviet pressure, the Western Allies began an invasion of northern France. While a mass of forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, several other Allied divisions from Italy also attacked southern France, allowing forces to come in at both sides. While the losses at D-Day were monumental, it proved to be a serious success, as it allowed the Allies to get a foothold on Axis-owned France. Paris was soon liberated by the local resistance, assisted by the Free French Forces, and German Army units were forced out of France. The German forces were finally able to slow the Allied advance near northern Germany, but their defensive line grew weaker by the day. Meanwhile, the Soviets launched a strategic offensive in Belarus that destroyed the German Army Group Centre almost completely, and soon after forced German troops from Western Ukraine and Eastern Poland. These victories triggered resistance coups in places like Poland, Romania, and Bulgaria, fighting with the Allies to free themselves from Axis control. In the Pacific, the Chinese were retaking land captured by the Japanese during their ruthless conquest, and managed to reopen the Burma Road. U.S. forces continued to press back the Japanese perimeter, decisively defeating Japanese forces in the Battle of the Philippine Sea. These losses led to the resignation of Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, and provided the United States with air bases to launch intensive heavy bomber attacks on the Japanese home islands. Allied forces scored another large victory in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, one of the largest naval battles in history. As Allied forces began to close in on the heart of Germany, it was clear that the great war for German revenge was comingn to a close. #worldwar2#ww2#france#paris#poland#sovietunion#war#invasion#dday#normandy#eisenhower#japan#guadalcanal#battle#history
