the action of remembering something
Today marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings on our Normandy beaches. Thousands of soldiers from the Allied Forces of Great Britain, Canada and America took part in a massive invasion of Normandy across the now beautiful and peaceful beaches, in what would be a pivotal point of World War II.
Sadly many did not survive this assault and many more would die before the end of the war.
For that reason I will spend a few quiet moments at some point today remembering these brave soldiers and thanking them for their courage. For without them I very much doubt I would be here in Normandy today and our world may well have been a very different place.
