I cite as my example today; I asked a room with five people, two significantly older than me, Ro who is a year older than me, and two college kids if I was correct on saying that today is the anniversary for D-Day in Europe. To a person they all said, no, that's in December on the 7th. I pointed out that I wasn't talking about the attack on Pearl Harbour, but the allied invasion at Normandy. Not one of them knew the answer. Ro started talking about how she can always remember the attack on Pearl Harbour and totally changed the subject.
My dad fought in the second World War. So for all those who did, take a second to remember them today. And then think about all those who died. They deserve never to be forgotten.
