A Day to Reflect

Village War Memorial
    Seventy years ago today, most of us are aware is the anniversary of D-Day. A day that many soldiers and civilians alike, lost their lives in a fight for freedom.

    Unfortunately, there has been and still is bloodshed going on throughout the world; however this day in 1944 changed the course of the world in which we live in today and the map of Europe.

Korean War Memorial, Bathgate, Scotland
     Many of the villages and towns in Scotland have memorials to commemorate the courage of their young men and women who have never returned from war.

    Whether, they died in the First, Second World Wars, somewhat forgotten wars such as the Korean, or more recent conflicts; it is a day to pause and reflect on what these individuals sacrificed and continue to sacrifice for us.
