On this day, in 1944, the winds of freedom once more began to blow across continental Europe.  Hundreds of thousands of brave men – American, British, Polish, Canadian, French, to name just a few – landed on the beaches of Normandy so that liberty might live again.  For so many victims, their arrival had been too late; but they did come and they did save what they could from the deadly claws of National Socialism.

The only way ever to repay the debt is to continue the fight against tyranny, be it foreign or domestic, be it overt, with an ugly face and repulsive braying, or covert, hidden behind smiles, promises and honeyed words.  That’s a fight that will never stop.


About Michael J. Kubat

I'm a grumpy Czech-born clinical social worker who is vitally interested in the survival in the United States as a viable democracy and a beacon of hope for the rest of the world.
