This was 2 weeks PRIOR — August 14, 1945 in New York.

August 15, 1945 (Japan time) was when Japan surrendered,
9-days after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and
6-days after Nagasaki.

The surrender papers were signed September 2, 1945.


72-years ago, TODAY. A day for sober remembrance. 

6 long years and 1 DAY after WW II began.

A glorious day for humanity.

We now need to be more vigilant than ever.

This was the War that was meant to end all future wars. Well, that has not happened.

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.

For those not that familiar with the history of WW II, it started with the German invasion of poor Poland.
