D Day

Today it is sixtyeight years since American, British, and Canadian troops invaded Nazi-occupied Normandy. This is the greatest amphibious military operation ever in history. It was a vital step in liberating Western Europe from the Nazis and saving it from the Communists. It is worth celebrating.

Meanwhile, in Sweden, we celebrate our national holiday, which has a much less glorious history. I believe it is better to join Mum, April, and Calvin (who are from the USA) in celebrating D Day.
