From the beginning of WWI to the climax of WWII...what a difference between two days though they are separated by many years.

I wrote of this day last year, albeit poorly, and even now my fingers fumble along the keys, and my mind gurgles at the desire to say something more substantial and compelling of the Warsaw Uprising. Yet, to me, it is like trying to write of a mountain from the base. It is so great and immediate that I can hardly think of a barrier or angle to distance myself enough from it to write of it. It is beyond my experience, so what personal thing can I say? It was the unique effort of an heroic people, so what universal principle shall I proceed from?

It is impossible for me to be more eloquent than the bald facts, so let them speak for themselves here:

God bless Poland, and long live Christ the King!

Niech Bóg błogosławi Polska i niech żyje Chrystus Król!
