71 Years ago!

World War II offiicially ended in Europe on 8 May 1945 at 11.01 PM (German time), the day after the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany, signed in Reims (North of France)

It leaves a record unparalleled in history with over fifty million military dead and mostly civilians (400.000 Americans, 400.000 British, French 600.000, eight millions German ten to twenty million soviets etc...)

We, as citizens, should never let that happen again.
What we face now is very grim with ISIS because they have a whole different agenda. They want the world to go backwards with their stupid laws and killings. There will be more killings but I hope they are killing on their side, not the allies.We cannot let them win or the world is dead!
