In memory of D-Day veterans
I don't how many of you had relatives who fought in this, one of the most daring and bloody-minded of recorded battles, but seeing as its 60 years on today I thought it only fitting to once again remind ourselves how much we owe the soldiers who fought so bravely on this day. My Great Uncle Ted, who died the other day, and my Grandfather were both involved in the assault and the former suffered ever after from shrapnel wounds and breathing problems as a result. He got off lightly, as he always said.
We can sit here and waffle on about this library vs that, or PC vs MAC, but shouldn't forget the people who enabled us to have that very freedom today.
