60 Years

It's exactly 60 years since VE day. I probably wouldn't have realised, but a friend referred to it in church this morning. I did know that this friend is 60 years old today, because we're going to a party for him this evening. What a day to be born....

This is one of the greatest holidays in Russia. This year, because of the 60th anniversary, there were celebrations even in Cyprus, sponsored by Russian Embassy. Concerts, firewords, and all the usual stuff...

I didn't even realize. There's been such hoopla made of Mother's Day that I haven't even seen it mentioned.

I think in the US we tend to focus a little more on our divided feelings over the dropping of "the bombs" and the final to WW2. but then, we weren't fighting on our own soil.
