June 6, 1944

It was 63 years ago today that the world watched with breathless anticipation as the Allied Nations invaded Normandy to liberate Europe from Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's. We find ourselves in much the same situation today, except the enemy doesn't wear uniforms and hides in the shadows. So much can be learned by studying the Normandy invasion. I was going to post some thoughts on that fateful day in 1944, but decided to just create a little montage of some of the pictures from that day and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's speech to the troops before the landings. It's a little rough, as it is the first time I have worked with the editing program I cut it on and I haven't cut video in a while, but still, perhaps it's better than words.
