June 6, 1944 By this time many brave and undaunted soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy against a fearsome and formidable enemy. Take a moment to reflect upon the courage it took to depart a landing craft under hostile fire and march into the jaws of certain death for... an idea. An idea that men should live free of tyranny. An idea that the people should control their destiny, not their government. An idea that All people of this Earth were created equal with specific God given rights.
