The 6th June is the date that marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day Landings where more than 150,000 American, British & Canadian troops landed in Normandy. The invasion was the largest air, land and sea invasion in history.

In Chapter 14 of This Is Your Quest I describe philia as the deep friendship that develops between brothers in arms who fight side by side on the battlefield. In this chapter, I pay homage to the fallen heroes who went to war but never returned home 😢.

In Chapter 20 of This Is Your Quest I describe agape as a selfless unconditional type of love. War is a concept that promotes hatred, violence, domination and death. It is at the opposite end of the spectrum to agape. From the beginning of time, war has always served the purpose of the rulers. War is people dying. War is property being destroyed. War is commerce being disrupted.

The D-Day landing is known as the beginning of the end of the war. The death toll was enormous but the battle was decisive in bringing long lasting peace to Europe.

Peace is better than war.
Being free is better than being enslaved.
Love is better than hatred.
