Context: Some Folks Get It, Some Never Will.


For a staggering account of what’s truly “f***ing terrifying”, I’d strongly recommend that, before trashing the memory or denigrating the accomplishments of anyone who contributed to the Allied war effort in WWII, Little Terrified Nellie read the late Iris Chang’s gut-wrenching book The Rape Of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust Of World War II.

After discovering just who we were up against and what the collective mindset of that particular enemy was all about, perhaps Little Terrified Nellie’s perspective on this little-known piece of our local history might just shift a bit.

Though, sadly, I suspect it wouldn’t.
