Thoughts On the 75th Anniversary of VE Day

From a distance war seems glamorous and heroic. Up close is a very different story.

Today is the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

When I think of VE Day and World War II, I think of those who gave their lives for the freedoms we don’t think twice about. I also think about those who because of a twist of fate, were casualties of this war.

Both of my late grandfathers (Z”L) fought in World War II. They were part of a generation of men and women who understood the sacrifice that is war and the courage it takes to stand up for one’s country.

May the memories of all those who fought and died during those horrific years forever be remembered for the heroes they truly are.

RIP.
