Today is VICTORY DAY! Glory to all our veterans of World War II, of all nationalities, who rid the world of the Nazi menace. If this had not been done, the world would be a sadder place.
NEVER FORGET their sacrifice!
NEVER FORGET the innocent victims!
NEVER FORGET the cost that was paid!
If we forget, we shall be doomed to repeat it, under a new face, assuredly, but, it would be the same old horror. That is why you should never listen to those who advise you to “move on”. Be it in one’s private life, or in the larger life of society, this advice is always destructive and malicious. We must always be mindful of the past, so that we can draw the proper lessons from it. A person or society laking a past is a soulless golem, never forget that.
To all our veterans, wherever they may be, whatever nationality they may be, or whatever was the form of their service:
It cannot be said often enough or loudly enough. We honour you.
