Remembering D-Day

posted at 11:25 am on June 6, 2010 by Cassy Fiano

June 6, 1944. 66 years ago today, the Allied forces stormed the beaches at Normandy and changed the course of World War II.

It was the largest amphibious assault landing of all time. Over 160,000 men stormed the beaches. Many of them were killed before they even reached the shore. We’ll never know the exact number of brave souls lost that day.

Can you imagine what it must have been like? To see those beaches, to know that there was a good chance the forces could fail, to see the death all around you? These men saw all of this, had to be terrified, were watching their brothers-in-arms falling all around them, and kept going anyways. May God always bless those men, because if they hadn’t possessed such valor, bravery, and courage under fire, Hitler’s murderous cult of death would likely never have been stopped.

Those men, those heroes, and their valiant efforts on D-Day saved the world. Remember them today, and especially remember those who fell.

I wish those men on those beaches were still around and leading this great nation instead of the punks we have now in both parties at every level of government. We are being destroyed from within. So sad.

The brave men who fought and died for freedom against a socialist nationalist regiem have been dishonored in a way that most Americans would have never believed possible, by a president who is trying to press into America inot a socialist nation he and his wife can be proud of where socialism replaces the republic and freedom that made us great.

Obama has shown us in so many ways his feelings for our republic and his plans for socialism. It is not likely that his socialist mentors would not have seen the fall of the Berlin wall as a reason to celebrate. Obama showed us an unwilliness to acknowledge the anniversity of that event. It was recently pubished that Churchill would be totally forgotten in less than a 100 years. Few greatmen have been forgotten in the last 250 years of our nations existent. Why Churchill, the only man mention, other than he was the representation of socilist Nazi defeat. Socialist in Germany have worked to remove the negaitives of their time in power. As demonstrated to me by exchange students in American and World history classes, they are missing key facts or have a very different teaching of the events of that war. Hitlers decree of public school indoctrination is still followed as the law. Obama refused to participate in the laying of the wreath on the tomb of the unknown soldier, many of who would have died on the Normany beach and other fronts against the socialist Nazi. Now we see him ignore the sacrifice of the soldiers who died on the Normandy beaches. How much longer must our nation suffer a man who denies he is a socialist, yet his action speak volumns that he is?

Where is President Obama today? Probably nowhere near anything resembling a military monument.

Remember, what ‘D’ day meant to the families and friends of those fallen on the beach of Normandy.
