D-Day 68th Anniversary Commemoration

As a native of Normandy, the D-Day has always had great importance in my life. The day the allies invaded Normandy to fight back the Nazi. My parents lived this event as they were only children and told me a lot about it. The Memorial for Peace in Caen and many other places in Normandy show how this happened.
A 68th anniversary is not a special anniversary except that we will start to see less and less veterans attending the celebrations as years go by. Inspired by fellow editors such as Rick Lupert with his Yom Hashoah Remembrance Day, I would like to launch a likewise event to commemorate the 6th of June and the Battle of Normandy.
So, here is an opportunity for you to submit poetry, prose, photographs, artwork, essays, anything you would like to share with mgversion2>datura' s readers.
What I intend to do with your submission is to publish an ebook which would also be available as a hard cover through

Art: 2-3 pieces .jpg
