This sort of sadness is out of character for me, but I'm going to go with it, and then be done.
There was a story on NBC Nightly News tonight about the Holocaust. It seems that there were over a million more Jews in the Ukraine that were murdered during Nazi occupation, but that they somehow, someway, mysteriously...just disappeared. They weren't counted in the 6 million dead that have been previously reported. Do you see what I'm saying? This is over one million more Jews that were murdered during that dark period in human history.
As if 6 million weren't bad enough.
I am not dealing well with this. Perhaps it's because I was just thinking about our trip to Washington, D.C. with my family. One of the places we visited was the Holocaust Museum, and I can't even begin to convey how disturbing and how awful it is. But I also think everyone needs to see it. We were there for the WWII Memorial dedication, and when we visited the Holocaust Museum, the lady who took us up in the elevator saw my Dad's WWII Veteran cap and started crying. She said, "I'm sorry...I just can't see one of you without crying...thank you."

And there are still those who deny it, say that it never happened. Imbeciles.
