73 years ago today history was made. As we remember many of the years since, we need to consider the lessons that history teaches.

Well said. After only just a little over a generation, if that, this day in history is only vaguely mentioned.

How true. I was in a meeting at church on Tuesday night, when one of the older guys (slightly older than me) asked what today was. He seemed surprised when I told him. Pretty sure that the younger guys in the meeting had no idea.
