On June 6, 2014, world leaders converged on the beaches of Normandy to remember the men who fought and died there 70 years ago during the greatest sea invasion in history.
A grateful world must never forget the sacrifices of those men who landed on the shores in 1944. They didn’t fight to oppress but to free. They didn’t fight for wealth but to secure a world free from tyranny.
It’s events like D-Day, a battle of mythical proportions, which inspires dieselpunks like me. During the 70th anniversary ceremony, President Obama summed up my feelings best:
“Whenever the world makes you cynical, stop and think of these men. Whenever you lose hope, stop and think of these men.”
