Something Wonderful: There Is A City....

"Once a year on August 1st, the people of Warsaw pay hommage to the fallen heroes that fought for freedom in 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. The biggest rebellion against German Nazi occupation during WWII cost over 200 000 lives and destruction of the capital. "

What a wonderful lack of confusion about their national heritage and identity. They didn't learn it in school, obviously. They learned it in blood.

What I can't figure out is this: After all the benefits of socialism, as it was given to them first by the Germans and then the Russians, they still haven't become like Britain: Self-loathing, badly educated and culturally suicidal. Clearly they haven't done socialism right.

I didn't know that. That's something special. Great for them for remembering.

And then there is the statue of Ronald Reagan that the Poles erected last year in his honor.

I should really try to get to Poland one day.

Poland, under-appreciated by a lot of people. They just keep plugging away, performing above their assumed weight, over and over and over.
Here's to Poland, may she remain free forever!

The civilized world owes a lot to Poland.
