A Day of Honor and Gratitude

Today is a day to honor and give gratitude to those who defended our freedom on far away shores. Yet, it is more than a simple recognition of a war gone by.

D-Day is a turning point in American history. It marks a time when America became duty-bound to promote freedom, rather than simply defend it.

A lot of people are going to spend the next couple of days telling us about the events, which led up to WWII. They'll expound upon how different the world's challenges were from those we face today.

A lot of people will be wrong.

You can watch history repeating itself, if you stop long enough to look. I think A.E. Brain puts it best.
