Today is the Day of Memory and Mourning in Russia. 71 years ago on June 22,1941 Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union without declaring a war. It was a peaceful Sunday morning.... 4 am..............Thousands of innocent people died during the first hours of massive attacks. The Great Patriotic War broke out. In the world it's known as World War II, but in Russia it's known as the Great Patriotic War, because all people of Russia ( including women and children) defended their country. This war is considered as the most murderous one in the history of mankind.The Soviet Union had to come across inhuman hardships gaining the victory and releasing the world from fascism. The war lasted 1, 418 days, 26 million soviet peole died, hundreds of the cities were destroyed and thousands of the villages were burnt.
On this day there're different events in Russia, including lighting candles and laying carnations to the memorials to commemorate the fallen.
Unfortunately, now we live in the world full of violence, too. But still most people in the world dream to live in the world of peace and harmony....I think our dream will come true and the future of the planet Earth will be peaceful and happy....
John Lennon has a nice song " Imagine" concerning this topic....I love it very much....especially the words: " Imagine all the people living life in peace"......now it's only a dream, but......
