75 Years ago on This Day The Guns Fell Silent, No More War


US – On 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe.

Years of war throughout Europe caused carnage and destruction brought on by World War 2. In the morning hours of May 8th, millions of people took to the streets in celebrations of the war being over.

The celebration wasn’t only in Europe though, with family members who worked hard at home supplying the troops with aid, and fear of losing more soldiers to battle. When the news spread of the end of war there was celebration in the streets.

Every year government organizations celebrate this day as a way to strengthen unity and peace, and remind other of the enormous sacrifice that was seen during these times.

Part of the celebration started today in the morning hours, but because of COVID-19 issues the celebration will stretch to May 10th 2020.

The Department of Defense posted a video earlier today celebrating peace of the seize fire watch below.
