Liberation Day Netherlands or Bevrijdingsdag (as we call it) is celebrated each year on May the 5th to mark the end of the occupation by Nazi Germany during World War II. In 1990 the day was declared a national holiday when liberation would be remembered and celebrated every year. Souce: wikepedia

With freedom comes responsibly. We fight to hold on to it, battling everything we perceive as a threat to our ‘freedom’. Sometimes, standing still for just a moment to enjoy it. But while we bask in our so called freedom, we mustn’t forget that there are others that aren’t free.
