On This Day... A Defining Event in Human History

Even though May 8 of 1945 turned out to be the first day of celebration in America, the actual surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allies took place on this day, May 7, in Reims, France. As I recall, it took place in a little schoolhouse in this French town.
Ironically, the final day of the European aspect of Man's greatest conflict might be considered the first day of the Cold War, even though events in Poland, prior to the May 7 surrender, had already given out warnings as to what was to come for the next half century.
Perhaps, for a moment, one might just consider the impact of this event, and ask where it has taken our world.
