Take a Moment to Listen . . . Especially if You Are Under Forty

On June 6, 1944--seventy four years ago today--the allies sucessfully landed on five beaches in Normandy.  Many celebrations of this world-changing event (known simply as D-Day) have come and gone.  Few are left alive who fought this day to breach Hitler's supposedly impenetrable Atlantic Wall and open that "second front" which would bring Nazi Germany to its final defeat nearly a year later.

On the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of D-Day, Ronald Reagan gave his famous speech, "The Boys of Ponte du Hoc."  I post this because it is the most fitting tribute I know to the soldiers who fought there.  But as I too am getting older, I find fewer and fewer people who know the significance of what happened at Ponte du Hoc on June 6, 1944, or who have heard Ronald Reagan give a speech.

In our age of political lunacy, banality, corruption, and incompetence, Reagan's words harken me back to the courage of my father's generation.  They also remind me how much I miss Ronald Reagan in this age of Trump.

Please take a moment to listen.  It is well worth your time.
