May 9 is a special day for all citizens of the former USSR. millions of people gave their lives to crush the brown plague of fascism forever.
We honor heroes, remember them about.

hi, Rick
regards, Max

One of the best English translations in verse of the Gamzatov's poem was produced by an American poet Leo Schwartzberg © 2018:
CRANES

Sometimes I feel that all those fallen soldiers,
Who never left the bloody battle zones,
Have not been buried to decay and molder,
But turned into white cranes that softly groan.
And thus, until these days since those bygone times,
They still fly in the skies and gently cry.
Isn’t it why we often hear those sad chimes
And calmly freeze, while looking in the sky?
A tired flock of cranes still flies – their wings flap.
Birds glide into the twilight, roaming free.
In their formation I can see a small gap –
It might be so, that space is meant for me.
The day shall come, when in a mist of ashen
I’ll soar with cranes, and final rest I’ll find,
From the skies calling – in a bird-like fashion –
All those of you, who I’ll have left behind.
Sometimes I feel that all those fallen soldiers,
Who never left the bloody battle zones,
Have not been buried to decay and molder,
But turned into white cranes that softly groan…

My respect for those soldiers and also those civilians that so bravely fought against the fascist monsters.

My complete and total gratitude to the Russian people for helping crush the Nazis scourge. My father fought them too in the US Army Air Corp.

We must remain ever vigilant against the rise again of rule by hate.
