As this was such a 'rush' they didn't send me a contract over the weekend as I was told they would, phone calls were made, I was working at the Global Development Center according to web site, in fact Two men in a shed! There was no one higher I could talk to.

We will remember them.
Written for WWI, but as appropriate for WW2, maybe more so.
There are fewer every year that do remember the end, but it's important we do remember them.

I'm genuinely wondering about the unintended consequences when, for example, people take down statues of historical figures who remind them of uncomfortable parts of their history. Removing those symbols doesn't erase the history, and I think trying to distance oneself from it is a mistake.
If it bothers them this much, then they should be telling themselves the statues aren't there to celebrate the individuals, they're there as a reminder of where they came from (warts and all). Even if they find what took place in those times objectionable.
I guess that's people's way of "deplatforming" someone who died a long time ago.
It certainly is VJ day today, but I have doubts about this being the end of the war. A close examination of history will lead one to the view that there was really just one war, from 1914 to 1991, with deaths in excess of 250 million.
