June 6th, 1944. A day that, although it is too easy to forget the fact, has shaped our world almost like no other in history.
Saturday the 6th will be the 65th anniversary of that historic day and I want to make this thread to pay homage to the heroes of that day, and to
their entire generation.
We owe so much to the heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice on that fateful morning. It matters not where you live, what religion you are, or what
you believe in. The facts are our existence would be immeasurably different if those valliant warriors had not succeeded in their ambitious attack.
To them give a thought, give thanks and consideration.
To the German dead at D-day a moment of remembrance too, history judges harshly but time heals, young men doing their duty, to you I also pay my
So I humbly ask of you, on this coming anniversary, to think of the price paid for our freedoms and to ask whoever is your higher power, be it God,
Force or Idea, to grant this wish: that all of our fallen should be honoured, and that history does not repeat itself.
Show your appreciation and show they did not spill their bllod in vain, show that we do appreciate, do remember, their sacrifice.
"Lest We Forget"
