D-Day โ™ฅย forever
poem by Jackie Loewen

Now take a momentโ€”if even only today,
to pause in grateful contemplation for
the tremendous service andย courageย of
collaborative, conquering allied forces…
70 years ago on this day.

Consider the carnage at Normandy,
its beaches wallowing in the colour of war.
Remember the blood of brave young men
flooding in by the thousands
โ€”many lifelessly washing ashore.

They fought for the sake of freedom,
their’s, yours and mine… far and away.
Thus lest we forget, in honour of these,
June 6th will forever beย known as D-Dayย โ™ฅ

Canada entered the Second World War onย September 10, 1939.
Between 1942-1944, the Canadian Navy grewย fromย 300 toย over 700 ships.
By 1943, the Royal Canadian Air Force grew from 4,000 people to over 206,000.
Weย had โ€œbecome the third largest naval power and the fourth air power of the United Nations.โ€
In 1943, Canada’s estimated population stood strong atย 11.8 million people.
