We recently went on a long car trip to spend time with family so I selected several audio books at the library. "Unbroken" was the first CD I put in the player and I was hooked. This is the story of Louis Zamperini and his experience in the Pacific in World War II.
We were so moved and captivated by this book. My husband and I both enjoyed it and could not wait for the next installment each time we had to drive. We really enjoyed the voice of Edward Herrmann who read the book. We were hooked early on in the story.
My husband and I drove separately for the last leg of our journey because he stayed behind for a conference. I heard the whole story on my way home, but my husband did not. He asked me about it and I said, "You will want to listen to it for yourself." He finished it today while cleaning out the garage. I walked through the garage and said, "Are you crying?". He said, "I'm teary eyed."
This is a story of unimaginable hardships, strength, courage, and triumph. I gained even more respect for the men and women who sacrificed so much for their countries and freedom in World War II and all of the wars following.
Celebrate your freedom today, Memorial Day. Honor those who fought for it and thank them. Remember those who gave their lives for it.
