94 years today...

Well, it is just after midnight UK time.

It has been 94 years to the day since Nicholas, Alexandra and Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Alexei were murdered. Such a wonderful family with a very strong bond. Rest in peace, you will never be forgotten.

Bob asked me to post a rememberance of the murder of the Imperial family on this date.  This is as fitting tribute as any.  We do remember.

Indeed. It is somehow both 94 years ago and very current.

Words cannot express how I still have to remind myself when I look at photographs of this beautiful, happy family, that they were shot 94 years ago last night. Yet I believe that the entire family, as well as the servants and the others who were killed the next night including Elizaveta Feodorovna "Ella" would express the sentiment in the song I used in my tribute.


This does not rhyme, nor does it flow well at all, but here it is anyways.

A clod of earth is tossed over
The bodies still warm
They laughed so recently.
They’re gone now
Their spirits from this earth fled
At the hands of the brutal captors
Who could not see a loving soul.
Gone, yet dead only to this earth
Nor forgotten, for as I write this
I feel an ache in my heart
For the family who cried out in vain
To the sounds of the pistols
That terrible night.
They lived with forgiveness in their hearts
And I know that now,
They’ve beautifully forgave
The ones who held the guns.

It doesn't matter that it doesn't rhyme, it's the thought that counts.

And it's lovely! I really want to watch your video tribute too but will have to do so later when I get in front of an actual computer...won't play from my phone unfortunately.
