On this day, D-Day + 60 years, let's salute some heroes who weren't faster than a speeding bullet, weren't more powerful than a locomotive, and couldn't leap tall buildings in a single bound.

What they did, however, was much more impressive. They saved the world from the tyrannical regimes of Hitler and Tojo.

I'm not just thinking of those who participated in the D-Day invasion of Normandy. I'm also thinking of those who fought--and often died--in Warsaw, Dunkirk, the North Sea, Crete, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, North Africa, Sicily, Belgium, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, the Coral Sea, and hundreds of other locations across the globe during those long years of the Second World War. They were Brits, Canadians, Poles, French, New Zealanders, Australians, Filipinos, Americans, and many other nationalities.

I, for one, am thankful to that generation for preserving the freedoms we enjoy today. We must always remember.

The Greatest Generation ---- that name fits for the people of this nation and all the allies that helped to save the world.

I am The Rokyn. You are a Rokyn. We are all Rokyns. But, i chose the name first so you can just call me "The Rokyn."  Rokyn means "gift of God"
