|Many years ago three grand things happened, comrades.|
Each celebrates its anniversary today.
Longest ago of the two, after nearly a decade of diplomatic talks, the United States recognized the great Soviet Union as a nation on November 17, 1933.
Verily, this was a momentous occasion, but only the start of the numerous great achievements of the USSR.
It was also on November 17, this time in 1970, that the Lunnik Program managed yet another world first.
Not wasting precious human lives like the decadent Americans had the previous year, the Lunokhod I was the first robotic spacecraft to land on the moon, collect lunar samples, and return to the Motherland - or any land at all.
Ultimately, the most important event we celebrate this day is the splitting of the Social Democratic Labour Party into the Bolsheviks and the Menshiviks.
Decades ago on November 17 1903, our early inspiration, Vladimir Lenin, led this Bolshevik bloc on to amazing things in the years to come.
As you well know, all this is but the past.
Leading us into the future are our chosen politicians, making way for a new American society.
Let us not forget those that have gone before us, but not let the future go out of sight as we do remember.
