A DEBT THAT CAN NEVER BE REPAID - D-DAY 60 YEARS LATER
I'm sure the blogosphere will get around to discussing the 60th Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion
in two weeks. Even the most eloquent of our amateur tributes will no doubt be inadequate to evoke what the men who waded ashore in the teeth of German fire saw and felt. Still less can we measure the sacrifice of those who did not come home again. It is because of them that men live free.
It's become a trite cliche to call them the greatest generation but in my opinion I doubt if my age cohort could have stepped forward in the same way and made the supreme sacrifice in such numbers( as for the Boomers, the less said the better).
In honor of the veterans still with us and those who are not - some words more expressive than I can muster.
