Today across Europe people are remembering the great sacrifices made at the D-Day landings.
Today is the anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's death.
Today is wedding anniversary. Divorce papers are in my drawer, I just need to get a cheque off the court and we're almost there.
Today is the day I meet my new boss for the first time.
Today is my brother's birthday.
Today some people are remembering the loss of a loved one.
Today will be a joyous celebration of new birth, and of passing.
Today will be a million different things for a million different people. Today will be a good day, a bad day, a sad day, a happy day.
Today I want to thank everyone who believes in human rights, and that freedom is worth fighting for. I want to believe that extremists - whether fascist UK political parties, religious fanatics or dictators - will not win.
Happy birthday Phil.
