II War Memorial, Washington D.C.

The Victory Day in my Motherland, Russia and Memorial Day in the U.S., might have different connotation but they have the same Goal for the Society: Don’t Forget, Remember!

Don’t Forget, Remember!

 

  • Remember the officers and soldiers who fought…
  • Remember all the victims, the women, the children and all the old people who suffered and were killed.
  • Remember devastation and breakdowns, misery and poverty…

Was it worth the all sacrifices? For what reason?Yesterday, I stood at the National Mall while watching the biggest Parade in the U.S. devoted to the Memorial Day and veterans of different wars who participated in it and remembered my two grand fathers who had been in the Second World War. None of my grandfathers ever told me about the details. And I know why, because it is difficult for them to let their loved ones to go through the same experience that they went through in war field.

On our Victory Day, May 9, I went for my personal parade here in Washington D.C. riding on my bike near the National Mall and the Second War Memorial. Our memory has no limits and space.

For my family, the Victory Day is the greatest holiday and celebration… when we Remember…

  • Remember our roots and family from where we are… because the family supports us when the rest of the world turns back, gives love, hope and keeps faith in us.
  • Remember our friends who help and encourage us to move forward, motivate when you are ready to give up…
  • Remember our teachers who give us life-lessons and help to choose a right pathway…

BUT… if we meet people who disturb or take away our inner peace from us: forget, forgive, and let them go…

Remember and be grateful for what your life brings every day…
