06.06.06...


Today was a regular day for me and the kids.

Regular days are good.


Being 'regular' is especially good.


Routine is a good thing and helps you to maintain your equilibrium.


June 6, 1944, wasn't a routine day though.

It was D-Day.

The invasion of Normandy.


Thousands of lives were given on that fateful day.


Encyclopedia Brittannica has a really neat website about the invasion of Normandy in 1944.

I was especially intrigued by the newsreel entitled "Penicillin and Plasma Saves Lives".

We were very proud of our technology back then.

And rightly so.


You can visit the D-Day Museum whose name has been changed to The National WWII Museum.

Or drop by The National D-Day Memorial Foundation website.


Either way... today wasn't about us and 06.06.06.

Even though we would like to think that it was.

That is a very soothing picture.
Once again, TJ, you have an amazing knack for reminding us what is truly important. Thanks for that, as always :)
