We cannot let today pass without remembering that it is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Normandy Invasion of June 6, 1944, and of the arduous days and weeks that followed.
At tremendous cost and effort, the Allies were able to take the battle directly to the Axis and finally to prevail against the insidious and malevolent philosophies that threatened to turn out the lights of the democratic world.
The invasion’s cost hit home week after week in reports of local men killed, wounded, or taken prisoner. We must honor their glorious sacrifice with a renewed commitment to protect and extend our rights as Americans, and to work for liberation of the world’s oppressed.
Glorious: worthy of praise, honor or distinction.
Antonym: Despicable, worthy of being despised.
