V-E Day May 8, 1945

68 years, a lifetime. 4 years was also a lifetime. 68 years ago today the nightmare for millions in Europe and America partially ended. Victory in Europe was the end of hostilities there, but it continued in the Pacific.

Millions owe a debt to millions more that can never be repaid. Americans that gave their lives and Americans whose lives changed forever deserve our gratitude. Many that survived that war have passed on. Many that stayed at home and supported the war have passed on. Many are still with us. We all need to stop for a moment today and remember what they did for the world.
