VJ Day In Kodachrome



This is some really neat film. The accompanying Jimmy Durante song is perfect. Commemorating The Bravest Generation. Now that's art. Hat tip to A Continuous Lean.

It is sad to think that, for the most part, the children of "The Greatest Generation" are the very ones working to destroy all that their parents fought for.

True, but I believe more of their children (and grandchildren) are working to preserve and strengthen it.

Lawrence Underwood said...

Amen, Richard. I certainly hope so.

I can only imagine the elation of that day.
