I feel like a midget standing beside giants when I think of the people who lived through the six years of World War Two.
It started 70 years ago today.
I’ve never fought in a war. No one has ever dropped a bomb on my house. None of my immediate family has ever been killed or injured in an armed conflict. I’ve never had to contend with the idea that a foreign power wanted to invade my country. I’ve never lived through rationing. I’ve never had to go into a bomb shelter.
To all you wonderful people who endured all of this and more, thank you.
Thanks for not giving up, for hoping, for enduring.
We live in a better world today because of you.
