Today is important day for all post-Soviet space. I’m not sure if this day is the same popular here in NI as in my home land but I think lots of people know about it even if they don’t celebrate this holiday. Try to guess what holiday is it today?
Yes, today is a Victory Day (9 of May)! And I was raised in an atmosphere of respect for this day and all the people who were involved in the liberation of the world from the Nazi invaders. We children were proud of our warriors, their bravery and courage even half a century after the war. We had someone to look up to.
But we’re not children anymore. And, unfortunately, having grown up in good living conditions, many of us have forgotten all the horrors and destruction that war brings. Moreover, some of us began to destroy the usual world order and impose their ideas by aggressive methods.
In this context, today’s holiday stops being a bright day of peace and love, and becomes a platform for propaganda speeches of those in power.
But I insist! War continues to be a war, even if you forbid it to be called so. And it is pure evil in any of its manifestations. So let’s not forget this and instead of the total anger, let’s share warmth, friendship and kindness with each other.
And then our children will be able to continue to celebrate May 9 as a bright day of goodness and joy.
I wish you all peace and love today and every day🙌
