The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
This Night of July 16th to 17th is a centenary of a real fatal event in History, one which repercussions were so strong along the XX century that
could be considered as the crime of the century, it opened a pandora box of the worst chapter by far for History of civilization.
A century ago Former Tsar Nicholas IInd and his entire immediate family, including his wife all his five adolescent children were brutally and
cowardly massacred in the basement of the Ipatiev House at Ekaterimburg.
That was the tragic end of 300 Romanoff Rule over not just only Russia but around other 17 countries that comprise the former USSR plus Poland and
John F. Kennedy:
"Who Make impossible peaceful revolution make violent inevitable".
JFK death no doubt marked a lot the History of America and the world in the post WWII war, but it was not his assassination the one that marked more
profoundly his century, it was one occurred around a year of his birth .
His quote though is really descriptive of the root causes of this barbaric act. It was the tremendous stubbornness of a statesman insisting against
many wise advices to repress violently his people and delay all needed social changes what boosted his tragedy and the one of many nations.
This was a crime committed not in an open space, not under light of sun, it was performed in obscurity, at night and in the underground, ideal
conditions for a so coward act. The victims were not all adults, there were at least 5 underage adolescents and the majority were females. The
fanatics can argue that it was not a crime but justice against a tyranny, but that is distraction sophism, it can not hide a crime against humanity.
The point is that all them were executed powerless, even without having the right of a trial, or knowing they were going to die, and this was
preceded by an abdication occurred 16 months before.
Actually Not all the victims of this tragedy were that day in that place nor were all aristocrats, this triggered a bath of blood that decimate the
middle classes in no less than 3.1 millions casualties in civil war, 10 million of starvation after their essential goods were taken away, more than a
million in purges, plus 4 millions imprisoned in concentration fields and 2 more millions forced to exile around the world.
Without the execution of the imperial family in Ekaterinburg surely the XX century would not have been what we remember at all, the communism never
should reach the strength that we all know, possibly Hitler never would have had a way to invade Poland without an ally as Stalin triggering WWII and
a Cold war of 7 decades perhaps never had occurred.
The repercussions of this massacre are so vast and grave that it practically changed the entire History of civilization for ever as nothing before
or after it.
It is not exaggerated go claim that what happened that night in Ekaterinburg, such an obscure execution performed almost anonymously altered the life
of hundreds of millions of people, civilians and militaries, religious and atheistic ones, workers and entrepreneurs, around the world in many nations
that would suffer for decades the political consequences of such a fact in many different ways.
During this night and tomorrow thousands in Ekaterinburg, western Siberia, and millions of Russian exile descendants around the world will attend
memorial religious services in the Russian Orthodox Churches arranged to remember the victims of is so tragic and important historic anniversary of
Ekaterinburg massacre as well as all the martyrs of the political intolerance in the former USSR.
This is an evening to meditate deeply in all what hatred has brought to Humanity and all what compassion may have prevented if a constructive mental
attitude would have prevailed instead of enmity, selfishness and confrontation, everything of what we have known and suffered could be entirely
May the good Lord prevent that this genocide and the mistakes that lead to it never occur again in any other place of the world.
Thanks for your attention,
The Angel of Lightness
