6/6/2017

Thankfully, I missed World War II. Through no fault of my own I was born too late, but not late enough to avoid the routine, everyday exposure to the men and women of that generation of Americans. They were an exceptional breed, and I wish we had their spirit back in these times, but as the wheel of history turns, it also seems to forget.

I do not subscribe to any television provider, so the internet is my only source of readable news. Sadly, most of the real news in the world is not available on the internet because the real news is edited out of existence by liberals. I’m saying this as a caveat to what I’m going to state, which is: Whatever happened to our memory of June 6th, 1944? Why have so many forgotten, and why have so many more never known? Why has our collective American memory relegated World War II, arguably the last “moral” war we fought, to old movies or documentaries like “Saving Private Ryan”, or “Band of Brothers”?

If we have lost the lessons of history, lessons that were so costly to so many, how can we hope to find our way into the future without risking having to re-learn the same lessons? And it is so very sad to me when I pop up the internet version of Fox News and find the headlines full of phony Russian election baloney, the latest anti-Trump obscene rant by some Hollywood nobodies with an opinion and an agenda, and nothing…not one headline about June 6th, 1944.

But wait! Father’s Day is approaching! I should take heart…at least that very critical “Holiday” won’t remain forgotten! What am I thinking? Wow, and there’s Washington’s Birthday, which begs the question – Does anyone under 50 years old even remember who Washington was? Wasn’t he the guy, probably a Democrat, who named the District of Columbia? Isn’t that somewhere in Central America? You get the point.

Try having something in common with today’s twenty-something’s. Try your hand at thought-integration with them. You can always win if you keep the conversation on track with iPhone talk, or the latest electronic gadgetry. Then of course, there’s always the fallback topic of Facebook, and what should be done to make it better. And don’t we all know how vital it is to everyone’s emotional well-being that we use it to tell all those concerned people where we ate lunch!

But D-Day!? What the heck is that all about? The fact that 9000 men (yes, ‘men’) were wounded and died to save a country that was not even their own, and laid down their lives and futures to help the helpless from a horrific moral evil that darkened all of another continent and threatened most of the others….shouldn’t there be a lesson in there somewhere we can honor and remember?

The world didn’t begin with us. It was happening long before we graced it with our presence, and it will plug along long after we become less of a memory than D-Day. There must be some way to leave it better than we found it.

Sacrifice is better than selfishness, and that’s what we’ve forgotten when we forget D-Day. June 6th, 1944, was a day of great sacrifice. If we have to re-learn what it is to sacrifice, as that generation did, will we be able to do it as well?
