Today is Navy Day. And even though Denver is as inland as can be, there are proud sailors and naval officers celebrating. General George C. Marshall issued a statement that “I cannot imagine a more appropriate moment than this evening for the celebration of Navy Day. Even the destruction of what remains of the Japanese fleet may come somewhat as an anticlimax and I say this with due regard for the inevitable hazards of war.” On a more ominous note, the Nazis crushed an uprising in central Slovakia. The war in Europe is not over, not even close.
Light the Sabbath candles.
