Day 18: A day where you felt passionate and alive.

It wasn't really one day... It was a whole weekend. I went to this AMAZING Christian seminar thing a few years ago where they focused on reaching out to non-Christians.
It was an eye opening weekend for me and I realized that I wanted God to be my Father; I didn't just want to be a Christian because my parents were. I wanted to be a Christian because I realized God is my savior and I can't live without His guidance in my life!

In my World War 1 and 2 history class, I am doing a presentation on Holland during the World War 2 German occupation of Holland.
All I can say is W.O.W. what a fascinating time!
Holland was going to be neutral during the Second World War, as they had been in the First World War. Germany said that they would honor Holland's neutrality but the very next day, they invaded. The Dutch army tried their best to defend their country, but they failed and for the next five years, Holland was under German occupation.
Here is an amazing pictures of Allied parachutists coming down over Holland in 1944 (Operation Market Garden) in an attempt to liberate it.

I absolutely love this picture - it's my desktop background. =D

I'm always so awkward when finishing blog posts.... I never know what to say. I guess I'll end this post with "Tot ziens!" Which means goodbye in Dutch.


  1. Was that seminar Blaze? I wish I could have gone to it! Oh well.
    I don't know why Hitler would tell the Dutch people that he would honor their nuetrality and then that same night, attack them! That is so weird! Wow, I didn't know that Holland was occupied by Germany for five years! Poor them! World War II was a very interesting time...
    See you tomorrow possibly!
