Put Into Perspective


D-Day’s 70th “Anniversary” has passed.

But I don’t know if “anniversary” is the correct term.  Is it commemoration?  Hard to say since so many young lives were ripped away from the world so violently.  Many were never found.

Blogger Mustang had forwarded some “then and now” images last week but here is another one.  If you get past the first two images (a then and now), please click on the subsequent images singularly to see the “now” photo.  Look at all the young faces…and realize that many must have been killed in the next months…or days.

It is humbling to see the devastation of 70 years ago but in today’s life…but only “they” know.
