The ongoing unrest, turmoil and riots in our nation over the last several days, have also taken the thoughts and minds away from this solemn anniversary.

SAINT-LAURENT-SUR-MER, France (AP) – At least the dead will always be there.
All too many have been, for 76 years since that fateful June 6th on France’s Normandy beaches, when Allied troops in 1944 turned the course of World War II and went on to defeat fascism in Europe in one of the most remarkable feats in military history.
Forgotten they will never be. Revered, yes. But Saturday’s anniversary will be one of the loneliest remembrances ever, as the coronavirus pandemic is keeping almost everyone away — from government leaders to frail veterans who might not get another chance for a final farewell to their unlucky comrades.
Rain and wind are also forecast, after weeks of warm, sunny weather.
“I miss the others,” said Charles Shay, who as a U.S. Army medic was in the first wave of soldiers to wade ashore at Omaha Beach under relentless fire on D-Day.
This protest in London now has nothing to do with George Floyd.
It is anarchy in the face of weak leadership.
