Exclamation Today is V Day in Europe

It is the V Day in Europe.

For the millions that perished and for those who gave up their lives to protect and save our lives, our freedoms, and this planet from nazism my eternal gratitude. They will not be forgotten.
I ask you to join me and pause for few seconds to pay our respect to them.

We all care about our men and women lost and surviving. We truly would not be here without them all. This picture reflects feeling for EVERY war, not just Vietnam.

Charlie,

I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments and am glad you reminded us.

p.s. VE Day was actually yesterday, May 8th.

This is a wonderful gesture.
Respect to all those who were courageous and gave up their lives.

Amen, brother. Yesterday it was Nazis, today it's the Islamofascists. Different names - same evil.

Unfortunately i think this is the problem, the reminding part. May 5 was well covered by press and TV. May 8 - there is nothing. Not that I am against the May 5, enjoy it, but what is wrong with us that we do not remeber day like This.

Charlie, I always smile a little around the end of April because that's when Hitler killed himself.
