'D-Day and Google'
I signed on to the computer this morning, as many people do on a daily basis. I have 'Google' set as my home page, because it is generally a pretty good search engine. Often the writers behind 'Google' will change their ‘doodle’ to reflect an event, birthday or celebration, or whatever they feel is worth taking note of on that particular day. I recall a few years ago they deliberately celebrated the birthday of the "drive-in' movie on this iconic day. Seemed intentional.
I remember the good ole drive-in but is this fact worth sharing with millions upon millions, as the key event to remember on this iconic day of all days?
Well, this is where I have serious issue so often! Does this type of thing bother you? This is just one thing that creates a firestorm in my heart! I pray you become ignited enough to START VOTING in all the elections! I pray you will research the history of this great nation as ‘history’ has been effectively and removed from our classrooms.
Please, don’t just read this. Read and share. Change begins with one person taking a personal stand.
Google! How dare you pretend nothing is happening on a day when your very own countrymen stormed the beachheads with no thought of self to fight the tyranny that would have stolen your very freedom to even exist.
Not even an acknowledgment, not even a nod of gratitude below their colorful little trademark. Shame on you.
We have heard people say the phrase; ‘It was EPIC’. Well friends, though unrecognized by the ungrateful masses, these moments that have ever defined our freedom should and must forever remain in our hearts and in our memories. I hope that you will continue to recall with a grateful heart, an epic time that must never be forgotten.
Share this freely.
"Today is June 6th. This date is significant in America's history. This date is significant to the world."
"D-Day was one of the pivotal events of World War II. American and Allied forces invaded France at Normandy on June 6, 1944. It has been 75 years.
Before the invasion began on D-Day, General Eisenhower summed up the mission of the Allied forces by saying,
"You are about to embark upon the great crusade toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you, I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle."
~General Dwight D. Eisenhower giving the D-Day order on June 6, 1944
"You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely. The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory. Good luck, and let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking."
I submit to you, that all men everywhere have been created for and designed for a mighty purpose. Some have used their freedom for the ultimate good. Some have chosen the path of evil and complacency.
Regardless of the place you call home, it should matter to each of us that an empire like Google chooses on a regular basis to ignore the truly historical and life changing events of this world. It is in these small things to which we will be held accountable, regardless of our political affiliation. Remember this day today, by choosing to honor those brave men who have given every ounce of their lives, for the cause of your freedom.
The first wave of vibrantly alive young men rushed upon the shores of Normandy and 92% of these heroic men died that very day. Their blood soaked forevermore into the sands of Normandy. Today is not merely about the birthday of the drive in theater. It is, however, “significantly" about the day that shall always be remembered as D-Day, a day that set man on a course of action, thus changing even the smallest of moments for all of mankind.
It is your small contribution, to live a life of gratitude and and to fight to remember our history as it must be remembered! It is in this moment by that we are contributing to our future generations and perhaps altering their course, towards the reality that we will each have to ultimately live with.
I leave you with one final quote...
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."(Edmund Burke)
