[For my friend [livejournal.com profile] bobby1933, who remembers when the lamps were smashed out all over Europe.]




        …  It is no good using hard words among friends about the past, and
        reproaching one another for what cannot be recalled.  It is the future, not
        the past, that demands our earnest and anxious thought.  We must recognize
        that the Parliamentary democracies and liberal, peaceful forces have
        everywhere sustained a defeat which leaves them weaker, morally and
        physically, to cope with dangers which have vastly grown.  But the cause of
        freedom has in it a recuperative power and virtue which can draw from
        misfortune new hope and new strength…


        - W Churchill, 1874 - 1955

Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Du grüsst mich jeden Morgen.
Seh ich dich, Freue ich mich,
Und vergess meine Sorgen

Schmücke die Heimat nach Schnee und Eis,
Blüh'n soll'n deine Sterne.
Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Ach, ich hab' dich so gerne.

Keine Blume im Tal
kann mir so wie du gefallen
Nur auf dich fällt meine Wahl
unter Blüten ohne Zahl.

Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Du grüsst mich jeden Morgen.
Seh ich dich, Freue ich mich,
Und vergess meine Sorgen

Schmücke die Heimat nach Schnee und Eis,
Blüh'n soll'n deine Sterne.

Edelweiss, Edelweiss,
Du grüsst mich jeden Morgen.
Seh ich dich, Freue ich mich,
Und vergess meine Sorgen

Seh ich dich, Freue ich mich,
Und vergess meine Sorgen…



                “We have nothing to hide, and have many achievements we wish to share with
                you…

                “The war ended a long time ago.  We're asking that you give us the chance
                to show you how sincere we are, in wanting to bring the Cold War to a close
                too.  The Führer wants only peace, and friendship.

                “Isn't that what everyone wants?”

        Tolling for the nameless, nailed up on the crooked cross
        An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing…


        - B Dylan




* Sigrid & Marina are both married.  Ask me how I know that:  Their dirndl skirts are tied at the left side.  Were they tied at the center, they'd be schoolgirls; at the right, single and potentially available.  [Tied at the back, they're waitresses.]
