V-E DayFor those of you who don't remember, yesterday was the 60th anniversary of V-E Day, the day the Allied forces were able to claim victory over Nazi tyranny. Very often, we forget the efforts and the sacrifice of those men and women who gave their lives and limbs so that today we would not have governments that were puppets of Germany or Japan, and that whole races of humanity would not be annihilated. It is very easy for our generation to forget the Greatest Generation.
We simply do not have an inkling of what it takes to defeat tyranny, and it can be argued that today, we do not even know what tyranny is. I pledge that as long as I am alive, though the veterans of the Great World War II may cease to walk among us, I will never forget them or what they did to save the world in which we live.
