"The D-Day landings were a pivotal moment in world history, made possible by the sacrifices of brave men and women from more than 40 nations," said He.  "As we honor their legacy, it is imperative that we update the current images and symbolism to reflect the true diversity of those who fought for our freedom, irrespective of color, creed, or citizenship. "Imafidon, who has played a unique role in assisting veterans and school children through initiatives like the "Help the Heroes", emphasized the importance of acknowledging the contributions of all those who took part in the D-Day operations.

"We must ensure that the stories of every nation who played a role in the Normandy invasion are told and celebrated," he stated. "Their sacrifices and bravery paved the way for the liberation of Europe, and we owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid."

His words resonated deeply with attendees, reminding them of the shared history and the importance of honoring all those who fought for freedom. One of the most poignant moments of the celebrations occurred during the "A Tribute to the Fallen" show at Southsea Common in Portsmouth. As drones and artificial intelligence lit up the night sky with the words "I can remember," Professor Imafidon, seated in the front row, remarked, "This is the best part of these ceremonies. So King Charles II missed the best part?" The event, aired live on BBC 1 TV, concluded at 10 pm local time, leaving a lasting impression on all who witnessed it.

Professor Imafidon's call for inclusive commemoration resonates with the spirit of the D-Day landings, reminding us that the fight for freedom transcends boundaries and unites people from all walks of life. As we honor the sacrifices of the past, we must also embrace the diversity that made such victories possible, ensuring that the stories of all those who fought for our freedom are preserved and celebrated for generations to come.
