Location: White Cliffs of Dover / near South Foreland Lighthouse / Kent / England      by: Hans-Jörg Bäuerle
Area: United Kingdom      Date: 23.05.2019
Dame Vera Lynn, whose song "We’ll Meet Again" became an anthem of hope and resilience during the second world war, has died aged 103 on June 18th, 2020.

The White Cliffs of Dover, in which Lynn hymns the British coastline as she hopes for peace, is another of her enduring patriotic songs – written by Walter Kent and Nat Burton, it was originally released in 1942.

RIP 
Unfortunately most days on Dover are not as sunny as this one. Does anybody else in here feels the way I do?

Die leichte Melancholie, die deinem Bild innewohnt, ist dem traurigen Ereignis angemessen.

One can feel the depth.
