Posted on 06/06/2018 8:19:27 AM PDT by Sean_Anthony
The reality of a Free World depends upon clear-minded people who love freedom so much that they would be willing to sacrifice their own lives for such Liberty, and that is why the very real sacrifices made on D-Day should always be remembered
Remembering D-Day with the genuine sense of danger, destruction, and death that had stained that dark period of world history will soon be lost to the generations of youth who will inherit the future. D-day belongs to cobwebs of history, and the old, old soldiers who returned from the horrors of that war have faded into the shadows. There are few left today who were there, but the memories have been passed on, and the world dare not forget those who lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy on that day. Those brave men gave their lives that freedom could survive, and that others would be freed from tyranny.
The brave boys and men who hit the beaches of Normandy made great sacrifices, not only on June 6, 1944, but also throughout the wareven long after the war. Their true and supreme sacrifice during the most devastating war in human history changed the world. Americans recently celebrated Memorial Day, one way or another, but it would have been fitting to remember the sacrifice of all of those who never made it back home again to live in a free country.
These men and women should be honored, not the Philadelphia Eagles.
This morning I shared an elevator in my building with a D-Day vet,and his wife.
He was 17 on that historic day— and still doing quite well.
The prayer also powerfully demonstrates what Progressivism has done to distort and change the actual history of America's reverence for God and His role in the "affairs of men and nations."
The children of those Vets are fading too.
Soon Holyweird will be making films about how the USA was the bad guy in WWII.
Great to hear.
