Memorial Whitsuntide thoughts

So today it was Whitsuntide and Memorial day, the later probably the more important even if not commerated worldwide.

Whisuntide seems at first to be quite random, it has a religious basis but Memorial Day appears to be totally random, a mass outpouring of respect by citizens to those that gave thier life for belief.

Which takes us back to Whitsuntide, but where as the religious commerates an individual Memorial Day commerates the masses.

60 years ago within the next 24 hours the first part of "D-Day" was starting to roll, 13,000 paratroopers were checking thier kit, 5000 ships were readying thier cabins, 150,000 and 30,000 vehicles were rolling across the quiet countryside of England to prepare for the unknown.

History has shown us one person can change the world; alter it permanetly for better or for worse.

What could 150,000 do?

We are told we must think about what has gone before, those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it's mistakes.

It took me a while to write all this down as I was thinking about it as I wrote and it fills me with a strange sense of pride and sadness that so many people would be willing to help right the mistakes one person has made.

It fills me with hope for the future as well, we as people can get things right, we as people are stronger then time, we as people to be blunt rock.

People are great.

Individuals are the problem.
