Ingratitude


The chief of firemen stands in front of a blazing house. A sobbing woman says her child is still in there. She implores him to send a fireman into the inferno to save her child.
The chief knows this is impossible. Sheer suicide. There is no chance to rescue the child or to survive the attempt.
Nonetheless, a veteran firefighter approaches the pair on his own accord. He volunteers to attempt the impossible.
He goes into the inferno!
But he does not return.
Later, the mother goes to the funeral of the firefighter who sacrificed his life trying to save her child. She walks up to his grieving family…What does she do next? - She spits in their face and curses the fallen firefighter for failing to save her child!!!
Incredible?
Not really.
The fallen firefighter was Adolf Hitler. The inferno was the communist invasion of Europe. The dead child was every victim of communism. And the ungrateful mother is postwar Europe.
Think about it!
