Memorial Day has passed, but if you have some Flying Lanterns left over, save them for the 6th of June, for it is D-Day. On this day in 1944, one of the greatest military operations took place in Normandy – the landing of the Allied troops prepared to fight Nazi Germany. This crusade was led under the motto that the troops will take nothing but victory. Because of these determined soldiers the world is different today. More than 5000 ships and 13000 aircrafts were involved in this crusade. There were about 9000 soldiers that were killed on this day, but more than 100 000 continued on their way to defeating the Nazis. The 6th of June is a memorable day. Even if you did not have any relatives that had given their lives or efforts during World War Two, you should take the time to think about what the world would have been if it weren’t for these people. On this day everyone has to stop and think about the importance of the military, about the consequences of war, about the suppression of human kind and about bravery. This is a day that should be commemorated in some way. But the important thing is to just take the time to think about all that. Raise a toast for all those brave men, for all the victims of war and for the human kindness. Release some Flying Lanterns and send your wishful thinking in the night sky.
