Nanking

China leads first state commemoration.

“President Xi told survivors that to deny a crime was to repeat it but insisted the ceremony was to promote peace, not prolong hatred.”


I remembered hearing about Nanking from my grandparents when I was a little girl. They were talking amongst themselves and I overheard them talking. I didn’t understand, but I knew it was bad because my grandfather was so worked up and upset.

Flashforward to high school and American History class. Talked about WWII & Pearl Harbor and I got interested in the whole of it.

I can’t even put into words my thoughts. I just don’t understand, can’t comprehend, how the soldiers can go through with it. Makes watching Shield’s Hydra agents “Happy to comply” all that more chilling.
