Modern Day History Lessons

Wandering aimlessly from youTube video to youTube video, as I do often, I came across the most fascinating series of clips that I have found yet. I sat there for all ten minutes of the first clip, absolutely enthralled by what this man had to say. He is a 94 year old World War 2 veteran who lived in Japan in the 50’s. In these clips, he recalls what Japan was like in the post-war era and a lot of his interaction with the Japanese while living there. He also talks a great deal about a great friendship he made with one of his former enemies. I am absolutely humbled by watching these.

The video I first came to was the 5th in this series. It can be found here. I watched all of the others and so should you.

This is what youTube was made for, and this is what keeps it going…that and a lot of young girls that like to dance in front of a camera to whatever music they can find.

Here are the other clips from that series:

I hope I live half as interesting a life as this man.
