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.
