When I last posted for D-Day, I used web photos. Couldn’t find mine, taken 20 years ago. Turns out I had placed them in an album. What a concept!
Here are just a few. It’s hard to imagine the majesty, unwavering determination, courage, and selfless devotion to decency, country, and community which conceived and carried out this breathtaking endeavor.
Fifty years after, walking on flat ground above the water, vast to the sight and empty yet, steel blue, placid like the black cows grazing on the furrowed field sky a colored mirror watching, waiting, breath bated – for an eye blink’s vision clicking quickly into clear focus – armada of liberation, filling the sea idea so daring, it stuns still conceived and carried out with brilliant care burden of risk bearing great hope
present sacrifice agreed exchange for future life
