The 6th of June was D-Day!
Otherwise known as Operation Neptune of the Normandy Landings, Tuesday the 6th of June 1944 that the Allied Forces made their beachhead on the shores of Normandy France in World War 2.
We celebrate this day for the memory of those who fell in the advance of liberating Europe from the tyrannical rule of the Nazi Party. Although many died, the objective was achieved and a foothold was made for the liberation of first France and then all of Europe.
We must never forget the brave people of America, Britain, and Canada who put their lives on the line that day to do this awe inspiring feat of bravery against overwhelming odds.
So in closing, please take a moment to reflect on this achievement and if you know anyone living or dead who was at D-Day, pay your respects with flowers if dead or a hug if alive.
