I know, two posts within hours of each other, lame, right?
But it's D-Day, and that deserved some note. Yeah, I know that a blog post is a dopey way to pay tribute to the men who died 70 years ago today, but a lot of people in these times don't remember or care about D-Day, WWII, or much of anything in our history. That's sad, but it's also a little scary because if you don't know history, you can't learn from it.
Our brave men fighting on Normandy Beach had a sense of identity and a duty towards their country, which isn't something you could say about most young people today. If we're going to continue being a strong country- a defender and upholder of what is right- we need to remember days of history like D-Day, and take back our senses of morality and love of country.
Well, those are just my thoughts, and I apologize if they were exceedingly dumb and/or heavy.
Take a look at this neat picture of an Army Priest saying Mass for soldiers on D-Day. Pretty cool, huh?
