"I truly believe no one else has lived a happier life than me.
I am resolved to repay your kindness.
I always, and forever, will be living near you."
- Kiyoshi Ogawa, Kamikaze pilot, in a letter to his mother, shortly before flying his plane into the USS Bunker Hill, 1945.
Every death you've heard about in a history book was a person, just like you.
Every Roman Soldier, Nazi sympathizer, War Hero, Corrupt leader. Every single one was a breathing, living human being with fears, dreams and aspirations. Don't let others remove the humanity from history. Don't forget that people in 1945 loved their mom as much as you do today.
