This is my gift to you, dear friends. As some of you know, my husband was from Germany and so this touches me more deeply than it might, but I think you’ll love seeing this video and I hope you send it to your loved ones, too. I have a friend named Klaus who, as a boy in Germany, was one of those children who suffered so badly that his mother had to fry what potatoes they might scrounge up after the war in car grease. Honestly. No oil. Remember Hal the Candy Bomber this Christmas…. watch the sheer kindness and goodness in his face; it’s there and you’ll see it and be better for it.
May this story fill your heart with sweet things like the candy he gave all those hurting children who were so well raised as to not ask for anything and then so kind as to share their tiny stick of gum as much as they possibly could.
Merry Christmas. Hal has the Gospel message in his heart…..through Hal, God helped those little children and we learn from it. My friend Klaus has undying gratitude for America and will never forget it. I hope you won’t, either.
