Proud Of Germany

On the hottest day of the year I was touched to be in Germany as they fly their flag in honor of the heroes who tried to assassinate Hitler yet failed on this day. The underlying desire of many of the involved high ranking Wehrmacht officers was apparently to show to the world that not all Germans were like Hitler and the Nazi Party. I applaud the attempt to stand up rather than sit back for the sake of justice. 

"On 20 July 1944, an attempt was made to assassinate Adolf Hitler, F├╝hrer of the Third Reich, perpetrated by Claus von Stauffenberg and other conspirators, inside his Wolf's Lair field headquarters near Rastenburg. This event has become known by the misnomer Operation Valkyrie which was the planned coup d'etat that took place immediately after the attempted assassination. The apparent purpose of the assassination attempt was to seize political control of Germany and its armed forces from the Nazi Party (including the SS) in order to obtain peace with the western Allies as soon as possible."
