Let’s never forget the sacrifice so many made to make the world a better place.
The passage of time move slowly yet surly forward. It cannot be stopped, rewound, or ignored. Sometimes it seems like it’s paused when we go to sleep, but it moves on with or without our knowledge and most of all, without our blessing. In the grand scheme of things, 75 years is not a long time. For many millions of people it’s a lifetime. For many thousands of people, 75 years ago was a turning point in their lives. Today we remember the sacrifice they made to ensure freedom throughout the world.
Take some time out of your busy day to remember what happened 75 years ago. Be thankful that you weren’t required to go through hell and back then, and be thankful that you don’t have to now.
Back to history. Back to memories. Back to where it all started.
If it weren’t for the brave men who stormed those beaches 74 years ago, the world as we know it would not exist. I’ve detailed it before in alternate history thursday posts. I will not explain it here. Instead this post will serve as a reminder to us all. Don’t count out the bravest, ever.
Seventy-two years ago the greatest invasion the world has ever seen began. Led by the great Dwight D. Eisenhower, over 150,000 Allied troops landed across 5 different stretches of beaches in hopes of liberating France from the clutches of Nazi control. This might not have been the turning point of the war, but in the eyes of the public, this was motivation needed to prove that the might of the Nazis wasn’t as iron-clad as everyone thought.
