Russia AND America! Time for both of us to grow up?

Quite simply, I am a proud American with no Russian ancestry. I am both a product of the Cold War, and one, who in later life, has traveled to the land of the Midnight Sun on numerous occasions, and written two books about Russia, its culture, its way of life, and its heroes.

I still have much to learn, but I am certain of one thing. This would be a far better world if the two most powerful countries on Earth exchanged an olive branch, asking nothing in return. My meager contribution? A poem of hope, of dreams.

Elbe. Russian and America Soldiers Celebrate Their Victory over Hitler.

For one moment in time
We were all the world thought we could be.
Two great nations, one common cause.
Side-by-side we vanquished tyranny.
No attribution sought, no attribution given.
Just me for you, you for me.
Trust borne of mutual respect.
Core values, cultural differences,
Recognized and celebrated.
At this difficult time,
In this precarious place,
Does history speak?
Is anybody listening?
