🏀 Shout out to my Denver Nuggets 🗻 who got a superb game 7 victory over the Utah Jazz last night, 80-78. What a game! If anyone knows Gary "G-Money" Harris, tell him he was the real MVP.
🎙“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.” - See who said it and why it matters at the bottom.
Thanks for reading!
Quote: “I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.”
Why it matters: On Sept. 2, 1945, Japanese officials held a formal surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay aboard the USS Missouri, marking the end of World War II. Sept. 2 was declared V-J Day or Victory over Japan Day.
- The quote comes from Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served as a general in the war and eventually become president of the United States.
