The above is serious business in Russia…

The world I came from has no idea about the extent of the effect of WW2 upon the people. I know that Europe knows about this effect, but my world in the Americas has no idea and no understanding about the death and destruction of a war upon her people…

Russians still have a bunch of people who remember the terrible times…


Svetochka has gone to her mothers to spend the next few days with her. This is very important for both Sveta and her mother. They watch the parade together and they enjoy the activities that all cities partake in…

This is the part of being Russian that a person like me from the USA cannot totally fathom. We did not grow up, even the ones in WW2 where late to the death party compared to Russians and the rest of Europe. We Americans just do not get it…

I watch it and I see it and I finally understand it, but I do not partake in it. I am lucky, my soul, while torn to pieces by other worthless and wasteful wars and such, does not have to deal with the total attempt at annihilation of life during WW2 in Europe…

Sveta’s mother lived through WW2 and all that happened to Mother Russia…


Therefore, I watch and listen and learn…

All these years and country’s still mourn the ungodly mass of deaths caused by World Wars that never had to be fought in the first place…
