APTOPIX FRANCE D-DAY ANNIVERSARYOn this Memorial Day do we remember what should not have been?

Only the West’s soul is more scarred than its landscape.

Do we still mourn the lost, do we treat the wounds, do we rub the scars with oil?

Many are the mysteries of human history.

Why are we so gifted in cruelty and destruction? 

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa…
