I keep forgetting how raw some of the emotions are about World War II around the world. I guess here in America since we saw ourselves as "the good guys" and we never had a rain of ruin over our cities or progroms to kill those we found undesirable (yes one can argue we did genocide to the Native Americans but it was not at the industrial scale of the Axis). 60+ years is still not enough time for the wounds or the memories to heal even with several generations past. The reality of history is substituted with nostalgia which give the raw memories of horror and soft look of the past.
Blessed be all those who fought because in thier minds they were on the right side and no one can take that away. Thanks to our grandfathers and our grandmothers.
