      Most today cannot relate to how grim it really was. Too many see the world through the lens of reality TV and other entertainment.

    I’ve seen some powerful documentaries about WW II using Netflix. They remind me how lucky we are.

    Hi Mike – I watched some the D-Day BBC output from Normandy … wonderful commemorative events, heard some appalling tales, and paid attention to some of the output that was given …

    The most important thing is that all those men and women who lost their lives, or were injured did it for us and our freedom – today most don’t have a clue what happened … and even more sadly aren’t interested …

    I’ll be posting on it sometime soon … Hilary

    World War II for the young adults of today is further away in time than World War I was for us. I don’t wonder that they’re not interested. It’s just history to them. For the reality TV generations, history doesn’t hold much interest.
