D Day, 72 years on

It was 72 years ago that the Western Allies landed on the coast of France.  6 divisions landed by sea and 3 more by air.  I cannot begin to understand the dread the soldiers must have felt just before landing.  Having been in Afghanistan, I have a bit of a feeling of jitters the night before an operation, but nothing anywhere as near as what they must have felt.

I weep now, looking at Europe.  Birth rates are such that the French, the Germans, the Dutch, etc, are all dying out.  I wonder what it was all about...
