The War Is Over!

Today was a beautiful holiday that isn't even celebrated in the USA. The end of the World War II. May 8, 1945. Toulouse has a very elegant monument honoring all the soldiers of the War and this day, the city held a ceremony honoring the end of this dark piece of European history. Sometimes, I am caught off guard by what the people of Europe had to endure. To have a great War occuring at your doorstep is more than I can comprehend. I thank all of the men and women who have protected our great country so that we don't have to endure celebrations such as this. God Bless America and God Bless this beautiful country of France and all of the soliders around the world that protect the freedoms of their citizens.
