A sobering day, at least for I. 78-years seems ‘so long ago’, but also ‘not that long ago’. Just 14-years before I was born.
Scary for those who thought the factors that ignited WW II had been extinguished forever.
Yes, we still have a few WW II veterans around. If you are lucky enough to meet one today remind them of this sombre anniversary.
Kind of interesting that this terrible war ended 6 years AND 1 DAY later; Started on September 1, ended September 2.
So tomorrow will be 72-years since the ending of WW II.
