      What a wonderful moment and photo!! Very interesting information as well with details that aren't easy to capture in a history book. It must have been a very special day for everyone ofcourse and for you who all your life till then had experienced living with the war! I really love this photo and your text! It's also makes you think of all those children in the world who are living in wars right now. I hope they will soon see the bad and dark days come to an end. Your post brings hope. Thank you!

      A funny thing happened, Because of my age i am asked
      if i was in the war i always answered no i was to young
      But one time i thought you don't have to fight or be a
      adult , You just have to be there at the time to be in a war.
