I don’t know if you guys know this or not but the girl and the sailor didn’t even know each other, the sailor was drunk and sexually assaulted her in the street and they got off the boat. history lesson. boom.
THAT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENED
Upon hearing the news that the war was over, everyone was celebrating in the streets. The sailor was overwhelmed with the joy of the moment and grabbed a nurse and kissed her before they parted ways. She didn’t see it as a sexual assault, she understood that everyone was celebrating. And it certainly wasn’t simply a drunken act.
Stop trying to ruin this picture. It captures the joy of the end of a really awful time.
If I’m not mistaken, these two remain friends to this day.
You aren’t mistaken, they visit each other and their families and exchange christmas cards.
And this is him now:
GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT PEOPLE. LORD
tumblr social justice shut down by tumblr historians. love it
I have reblogged this before, but I’ll do it again because tumblr historians will whoop the nonsense and crap right out of you.
Nothing is more soul crushing than thinking about the fact that the 9/11 search and rescue dogs were getting depressed when they couldn’t find any living people in the rubble. They thought that it was all their fault somehow and were getting sad. So other search and rescue workers had to hide in the rubble to give the doggies a “successful find” to keep their spirits up.
This was the traffic sign that greeted Guests traveling to Disneyland that morning. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure never opened to Guests that day. Walt Disney World was already open and Guests were escorted out of the park as soon as they received news of the first plane hitting the World Trade Center Tower and another plane hitting the Pentagon.
I was actually at Disney World when this happened. We were on the bus from All Star Resort to Magic Kingdom when the order was given for all buses to turn back to the resorts. There were a few people who were crying on the bus who had relatives working in the WTC. The rest of the day, no one was aloud to go to the parks but almost everyone left to go home and the resort was deserted. Later on we found out that Disney World was actually one of the prime targets lower on the list due to it representing the extravagance of “the great Satan”.
