“This is your victory!”

Victory

Weekly Photo Challenge: Victory

“God bless you all. This is your victory! It is the victory of the cause of freedom in every land. In all our long history we have never seen a greater day than this. Everyone, man or woman, has done their best. Everyone has tried. Neither the long years, nor the dangers, nor the fierce attacks of the enemy, have in any way weakened the unbending resolve of the British nation. God bless you all.”

Winston Churchill … May 8, 1945
Whitehall, London

During a visit to Yorkshire two years ago we stopped at a village that was hosting a victory re-enactment of the Second World War. We didn’t stay long, but were there long enough to enjoy the spirited revival of an extraordinary moment in British history.

The gentleman in this image delivered a powerful rendering of Winston Churchill’s victory speech and was my¬†obvious choice for this challenge.

Peace and prayers for Paris at this difficult time.

Thanks for visiting,
