World War II

A Quote by James Bradley on flags of our fathers, war, and world war ii

Heroes are something we create, something we need. It's a way for us to understand what is almost incomprehensible.

A Quote by John Gillespie Magee on flight, space, flying, god, john gillespie magee, world war ii, ww2, and second world war

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds-and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
Where never the lark, nor even eagle flew—
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high, untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

A Quote by Raphie on holocaust, world war ii, when good men do nothing, and murder war

She told me there was a reason God had taken the young man, his corpse riddled with 15 stab wounds and 83 bullets. I told her "There is a reason indeed. Same way as there was a reason 12 million Jews, Gypsies, Poles, Gays Handicapped and others died back during World War II. A whole lotta good men did exactly what they are doing now. You don’t know what that is? Exactly.You would know if they were."
