I had a post already prepared for today’s Thursday Doors, but since early this morning I’ve been watching the live special D-Day commemoration coverage on TV from Courseulle-sur-Mer where the Canadian Forces landed on Juno Beach 75 years ago today.
If you are British, American, or French, I suspect there is similar coverage on your networks related to the Allied Forces which landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944.
Having walked on that same beach only 6-7 weeks ago, I find myself deeply touched. For someone like me, so far away, to be so emotionally touched, I can’t begin to imagine the thoughts of the very elderly veterans on the various Normandy beaches today, or the citizens of Normandy themselves.
So on this day commemorating an event both horrifying and strategically important to the world we know today, I offer my own small wordless remembrance from Juno Beach.
Lest We Forget.
