What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I hope everyone is having fun during this unofficial start of summer. As everyone has fun and enjoys themselves, please remember the reason for this day.

As a reminder, I highly recommend watching this delightful special (although I say that about many Peanuts specials). In this one, a sequel of sorts to the 1980 feature film Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown, the Peanuts gang leave Europe for home (long story--see the movie) when they find themselves at not one but two significant places in military history--Flanders Field of World War I, and Omaha Beach of World War II. It's a poignant, sobering special that conveys the sacrifice of the brave souls of both of these hallowed grounds in a way viewers of all ages can understand and appreciate. If you can, please take a half hour of your time for this wonderful and rarely seen program.

Thanks! Be safe!
