Today marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the beginning of what General Eisehower called the “Great Crusade.” This was a time when all Americans – left, right, center or otherwise pulled together to achieve a common goal. Today, we find ourselves divided and not willing to work together to leave a better world for our children and their children. Some of us are fond of embracing slogans such as “Make America Great Again” while others contend that we never were that great, or that we’re already great. The truth no doubt lies somewhere in the middle. Maybe we should instead all work together to “Make America Better Than Ever.”
Give thanks to the “Greatest Generation” whose bravery and sacrifices on the Beaches of Normandy on the 6th of June 1944 must never be forgotten.
D-Day, 6 June 1944 — Time once again to remember how much we owe to the “Greatest Generation.”
