Happy VE Day!

For those of you who don't know, 63 years ago today, Victory in Europe was declared. The Allies of WWII accepted the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. Our Governor General Michaelle Jean is currently in France, attending ceremonies that marking the anniversary of VE Day.

I really feel for France. Both world wars they were caught in the middle and the fighting was in their backyard.My only hope is that the world will never have to suffer through something like again.

This is Churchill, Winston Churchill. He's waving to crowds after announcing the end of the war on the radio. I took "The Gathering Storm" out of the library and hope to dig into it soon. It's his account of the beginning of WWII.
