I began my search about 30 minutes ago. Looking at the online editions of major newspapers and news sources, I am at a loss for words and emotion. Time and time again important dates come and go and no reported news. I guess we are too busy to remember. That is what I always hear: I am too busy.
Today (as I write this), June 6, is the 69th anniversary of D-Day. At 6:30 a.m. on this date in 1944, over 150,000 men stormed the beaches at Normandy. More than 2,000 American lives lost.

The Normandy campaign brought Allied troops into Germany and led to the eventual surrender of the Nazis. D-Day brought the liberation of France and eventually ended the war, liberating Europe.
Words cannot describe the level of sacrifice and heroism. It was different time, and a different mindset.
There was one article in the Boston Herald titled "D-Day Vet: 'We made a difference.'" Maybe in a small way, we can make difference by taking time in our schedule to thank a vet, financially support today's veterans, remember those still fighting the war on terrorism, and/or at the very least say a prayer of thanksgiving and support for those who sacrificed everything on that morning of June 6, 1944.
