It may still be morning for parts of the Western Hemisphere, but in Normandy France, it is late afternoon on the 75th celebration of D-day.  Following renditions songs, stories, and a moment of silence, world leaders pay respects to the veterans of World War II and the Battle of Normandy.  What a great day to take time to thank a veteran, who you believe served your country and/or the world, well.

If you want more information on the Normandy celebration I found this collection of stories particularly varied and easy to navigate:  BBC News D-Day.

On this day of memorialization, I thank veterans and wish you peace.
