It’s VE Day today—Victory in Europe, marking the end of World War II in Europe.
Seems pretty poignant this year, what with Europe seemingly on the brink of World War III…
So what does this bring up for you?
Maybe you had a grandparent in the war and you can remember some of their stories.
Maybe you’ve visited somewhere that had a profound effect on you—like Oradour-sur-Glane, where Joe and I visited a few years ago. It was the site of a massacre by the Nazis and it was quite something to be there.
Set a timer for 5 minutes, and write your thoughts.
