#157 Post one of two. Remembering the fallen and the brave

There were loads of images on my timeline today regarding the 70th anniversary of the D Day landings.  This one was the one that really said it all for me.. 10394849_10152044248951856_2780394510855842696_n

 

It was on a facebook post of an ex-mil mate of mine, Paul. The words he followed it up with served to hammer home the message:

Just stop and give a thought. Seventy years ago, thousands of brave people gave their lives to liberate Europe from the disgusting doctrine of National Socialism. Think about how you’re able to state what you think and like on places like Facebook without fear of arrest. 

Your freedom is a direct result of the actions of these men (and women). 

For your today, they gave their tomorrow

Says it all really. It’s been a day to reflect and to thank those brave service personnel from 70 years ago.
