Remember back to June 9, 2002...
In the SW Colorado Mountains a couple of years ago, when someone's carelessness with fire destroyed thousands of acres of mountain forests in the San Juan mountains. This year was the 2nd anniversary of the Missionary Ridge Fire, SW Colorado. The undergrowth has come back to give the mountainside some green hues, but the burnt trees still standing remind us how fragile our forests can be with human carelessness. Remember back when you were a small child in school and Smoky the Bear would say, "Only YOU can prevent forest fires!" ... Or something to that effect.
Last Sunday, 6 June 2004, was the 60th anniversary of D-Day... I hope the remembrance of this Normandy Invasion did not get lost in the memorial, death of past president Ronald Reagan. The National D-Day Memorial Foundation has a great website that commemorates the 60th anniversary of D-Day on June 6, 2004. They state, "GENERATION TO GENERATION - Only through preserving our past can we guarantee a future where the lessons and legacy of D-Day will be remembered." Check out the home page to learn more about the Invasion of Normandy... Normandy: 1944 - Invasion. I found the following article in a Colorado newspaper, Pine River Times - View from the Boondocks - Honor Veterans by Protecting Our Freedom, written by Carole McWilliams.
