When In Rome – The Promise

“The Promise”

If you need a friend
Don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt
And when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I’m gonna always be there
Sometimes if I shout
It’s not what’s intended
These words just come out
With no gripe to bear

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you I will

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I gotta tell you
Need to tell you
Gotta tell you
I’ve gotta tell you

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you wait around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise, I promise you

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will
I will
I will

March 1938, Germany under the influence of Adolf Hitler annexed Austria. Will history repeat itself? March 2014, Russia under the influence of Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea?

March 12, 1938: Annexation Austrian-Style

By Marion Kraske

When the Nazis marched into Austrian on March 12, 1938, hundreds of thousands of Austrians turned out to welcome them. But after the war, the country preferred to see itself as just another of Hitler’s victims.

Suddenly, events began moving in fast-forward: It was 10 minutes to eight in the evening, March 11, 1938, when Austrian chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg took to the radio to address his people. He bade them farewell with portentous words:

“God protect Austria.”

I don’t understand the lack of decisiveness on the part of the European nations that will soon have Vladimir Putin annexing all of its former lands under the pretext of protecting the disenchanted former Russian citizens who think this leader, is their savior.

May God protect Ukraine… because it doesn’t seem as if anyone is going to come to the aid of the people of Ukraine.
