This Day in History

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back

Even while we sleep

We will find You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own desire
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide

Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it?

Everybody wants to rule the world

 All for freedom and for pleasure

Nothing ever lasts forever

Everybody wants to rule the world

On May 8, 1945, the plug was finally pulled on the Nazi war machine.



  1. Shout
    Let it all out
    These are the things I can do without
    Come on
    I'm talking to you
    Come on

    Wow, Kirk, I appreciate what you did here to mark the anniversary of V Day, good buddy!

    In reply I offer these philosophical quotes by George Santayana:

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    "To call war the soil of courage and virtue is like calling debauchery the soil of love."

    "Only the dead have seen the end of war."

    "The truth is cruel, but it can be loved, and it makes free those who have loved it."

    "All living souls welcome whatsoever they are ready to cope with; all else they ignore, or pronounce to be monstrous and wrong, or deny to be possible."

    "The highest form of vanity is love of fame."

    "Omarosa... you're fired!"

    Thanks, good buddy Kirk, and enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. Glad you liked it, Shady. I'll be dropping by your place sometime this weekend to see what's going on with Flash.

      Was George Santayana really a White House speechwriter?

    1. Let's hope it never gets that dark again, Debra.

  3. Most people don't realize how anti-war Americans were before Pearl Harbor. But in true spirits of today, Americans were unwilling to get off their asses to help the UK or France, nor the Jewish refugees.

    1. Adam, I believe the term "America First" was coined back then.
