D-Day – Freedom: Our Right?

[Poppies - Some Living; Some Dead]

Poppies – Some Living; Some Dead

06:30 6th June 1944  … 70 Years Ago Today … Operation Neptune

Today commemorates D-Day.

Nobody but those who were there can really appreciate what it meant or what it was like.

Perhaps if we could capture a glimpse of what so many gave up & went through for the freedom that we take for granted & claim as ‘our right’ today, we would be more thankful.

As I drive around & see the red poppies growing & blooming in the fields & hedgerows I am thankful for what I don’t know & am reminded of those who do.

Thank you all, still with us & departed, for your sacrifice, bravery & discipline

 

Until next time …

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
