Here in Kansas we are finally getting lovely spring rains. Flowers and garden look so much happier than they did a week ago. Unfortunately the moisture is probably too late for much of the wheat crop. Farming---a very difficult, risky profession with often intangible rewards. The peaceful mornings and evenings, seeing wondrous sunrises and sunsets are one of the best.
Of course the life of soldiers are also risky and difficult. Seventy years ago the world awoke to a much more peaceful time than it had since 1939. The Germans signed documents of surrender on May 7, 1945. Americans were thrilled to hear President Truman on the radio the following day.
