I love Iron Maiden. This song is by far one of their best. However, lately I have been struck by the message of this song, something I missed while listening to Maiden in Junior High (some 20 years ago). It is a tribute to those the took to the air to defend the UK. For too long, England was the only nation fighting the Germans under Hitler. Without their determination and sacrifice, their would not have been a D-Day because Hitler would have already won.

The opening Churchill clip give me chills.

I am busy getting ready to move to Provo, while also finishing my work here in Rexburg. Posts will continue to be rare.
