Nazi Germany, My Dr. as a child and my father...what could be worse?

So this post is not religious, and I have no analogy to offer up tied to the bible. I wanted to share something with you that involves Nazi Germany, Myself at 8 and my Doctor when I was 8.

It makes me laugh now. The Doctor over the years told me he still remembered it and had to  laugh (he was not laughing at the time). He is retired now and a was a great Dr.

I was 8 years old. I loved war movies. My whole family has been either a Marine or at the very least in the Army. My brother and I were Marines, as well as my Grandfather, and my Dad and Uncle were Army. At 8 I did not realize much about the Nazi enemy in the movie other than the fact that they had cool uniforms and designs on their gear and tanks. I had a Dr. appointment and decided to draw a picture for my Dr. I liked him and it was not strange for an 8 year old to want to do such. I had a battle scene, people fighting (im sure it looked like stick figures) and all the Nazi designs you could have. I drew it on the way down in the back seat.

We got there and I told the Dr I made him a present. He smiled and opened it. A look of shock came over his face. Doctor Blustein was less than pleased with my drawing, being a Jew you could understand why. My dad peekd around and turned red. Im looking at their expressions and not understanding the issue. My Dr. appt ran a bit longer than planned as he sat down and explained what Hitler did....I must admit he explained it very well to an 8 year old. He knew I meant no harm and didnt know. Looking back I feel bad...not about the picture...I was 8....but sad he retired 8 months before my daughter was born, I would have loved him to deliver her as well.
