The passage of time move slowly yet surly forward. It cannot be stopped, rewound, or ignored. Sometimes it seems like it’s paused when we go to sleep, but it moves on with or without our knowledge and most of all, without our blessing. In the grand scheme of things, 75 years is not a long time. For many millions of people it’s a lifetime. For many thousands of people, 75 years ago was a turning point in their lives. Today we remember the sacrifice they made to ensure freedom throughout the world.
Take some time out of your busy day to remember what happened 75 years ago. Be thankful that you weren’t required to go through hell and back then, and be thankful that you don’t have to now.
