June 6, 1944

Shame on me for not recalling earlier. It is, of course, the anniversary of D Day, the Allied invasion of occupied Europe that helped turn the tide of World War II.

Men younger than me, by the tens and hundreds of thousands, hurled themselves at the seemingly impregnable walls of Fortress Europe, and said simply that tyranny would not stand. They died there, on the beaches, having faith that we, their children, would live a better life because of their sacrifices.

I hope we're not letting them down.
