70 Years Ago Today: D-Day June 6, 1944

I don’t know if it is a product of getting older or if it is just my appreciation of history but every year this day holds more meaning for me.

This year more so than ever and it took me some time to figure out why.

Quite frankly, I look at my country and see:


This is a day to honor those brave men who sacrificed 70 years ago. The fear they endured and overcame is something I will never begin to comprehend. This is not the day to question the resolve of present day America , this is a day to be grateful that when needed America did have the resolve to complete the job required.

  1. T.B., I share your awe at the significance of this day seventy years ago at Normandy. The massive scale of bravery and commitment to human liberty makes me emotional no matter what day of the year I think about it. Brits and Australians were fighting the enemy at their doorsteps, but Americans and Canadians were far overseas fighting more for the liberty of OTHERS than directly for North America’s immediate safety. Among significant events in human history, I view the courage and sacrifice of Allied Forces who died at Normandy gaining a toehold for the liberation of Europe as second only to that of Jesus’ sacrifice in dying on the cross. My life and my imprint on the human record are infinitely undetectable by comparison. Stopping to understand and respect the legacy of D-Day is vitally important for anyone seeking to live a life of humility and service to causes greater than oneself.
