Just like George Santayana said, "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it'" The majority have forgotten not only what D-Day was for but why it was necessary. The same mistakes that lead to the Nazi control of much of Europe and D-Day are being made yet again and the attitude seems to be "so what?" Before she died in 2011, my mother said repeatedly she was watching the events of the 1930s all over again. Now that is a horrific statement and she was referring to events here in the USA, making it double so.....
Most Americans definitely do not understand the significance of D-Day. As a history teacher, I have made it my life's work to make sure I reach as many young people as possible to ensure that veterans' sacrifices are not forgotten. Those brave souls saved the world.
I dont think most people understand the significance of D-Day and I think that is a sad thing, because so many of our young men freely and willingly charged into battle very bravely without a seconds thought to save our rights and freedom. They died at a very young age so we could forget,hang out and party or do what ever we want without a care at what the cost! I personaly think its sad that very few people care or think about it anymore.
"Most People" alive today were born well after D-day. "Most People" don't like history and don't like looking to the past. "Most People" will stumble over the same stone on which our Grandfathers tripped.
It has gone the way of most holidays it is just a day off, if you are lucky.
