68 years ago ....  right now ....
The sky is laden with C-47 aircraft spewing their loads of parachute 
infantry into France several miles inland from the coast of the English 
Channel. Other C-47s are feeling the the lurch of their CG-4A gliders 
disconnecting from the towlines that brought these cumbersome, silent 
aircraft from England to France. The goal of these airborne troops is to 
deny movement of German reinforcements to the coast where in a few 
hours, masses of American, British, Canadian, and other troops will be 
disgorged from landing craft to begin the invasion of France. The Allies 
have begun the final chapter in the defeat of the Axis powers in Europe 
-- to end WWII in Europe 11 deadly months later.

In the meantime, the US, Germany, and Japan continue their urgent 
efforts to devise a workable atomic bomb -- one more of mankind's 
ultimate weapons which began a little while ago with clubs .... we do 
keep trying.
