Europe Day

EU Flag

It seems fitting to me that Europe Day is celebrated on the day after Victory in Europe Day, and on the same date as Victory Day. For all its many and very real problems, I think the European Union has almost done miracles for peace and cooperation in this formerly most war-torn of places, slowly freeing us from the scourge of nationalism. If it still seems wondrous that we can now cross borders almost like we would a street, that's because it is. So here's to Europe.
