To commemorate this day

Today, May 8, is the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe, the end of the World War II in Europe. If you're a fan of Charlie Chaplin, you're quite familiar with this speech. It comes at the end of "The Great Dictator," released in 1940. Forget the thought that Chaplin stepped outside of his on-screen character of The Jewish Barber and spoke as Chaplin himself. The speech is one for the ages and deserves to be heard again. Idealistic, yes. But hopeful and maybe, someday....
