D Day

I once, more than a bit stupidly, asked a retired Wing Commander "what was it like?" We were having a pint in a pub in London at the time and he'd flown Mosquitos during the war, as a pathfinder. After a longish silence he replied, "We had to do things no one should ever have to do," though he added that he "enjoyed the tracer."


We must thank God for the success of the D Day landings and pray for those who gave their lives.

God bless,

All who landed gave something, some who landed gave everything.

And if they could see us now, what would they say? If they went to the Episcopal Church and were greater by a queer priest and a lesbian bishop, how would they react to the 'hope and change'?

The Episcopal Church is such an embarrassment. At best. Unlike our awesome Silver Weight Fairy Ruler.
