Great pacific waves thrash soldiers around violently in a tiny metal boat. It's headed towards distant explosions, growing louder with every passing minute. Finally, they land and the ramp drops, stealing away the little safety they have left. Forced off the boat, they cluster on the beach desperately looking for cover, but to no avail while the enemy fires upon them, as sitting ducks. They struggle to make inches each day. Only the bravest of soldiers could have performed such a task as the American Marines did back on Iwo Jima during World War II.
Sacrifice has taken on an almost historic reference in our collective lexicon. To be sure, we can each recall points in our lives where we have given our time, our money, or even our homes when others were in need.
Still, in our most modern of societies, when speaking on periods of unified sacrifice, the majority of our examples lie in antiquity. And so, we are left to tap into our deep cultural memory to find our precious moments of sacrifice, both past and present, which form our national identity.
Come join us on Friday October 7th at 2:00 p.m. The Lee's Summit Branch will be viewing the eighth wonder of the world, the one and only King Kong. Of course, we'll be watching the original and best version of the giant ape from 1933, starring Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong.
