Remembering D-Day

I don’t feel qualified to write this.
It’s supposed to be a post about sacrifice… honoring “the boys that became men” who stormed the beaches of Normandy in World War II. I think it’s safe to say that if D-Day had not been successful, America and her Allies more than likely would have lost the war and Germany would rule. But thank the Lord, that’s not what happened.
D-Day was a success.
And D-Day helped turn the tide of World War II.
And D-Day happened because young boys made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation.
2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave His life for the salvation of mankind.
In the history of the United States, countless men and women have sacrificed for the freedom of all Americans.
Every time I watch the movie “Saving Private Ryan,” the opening scene gets me. When the tailgate of the Higgins boats were opened, shots began firing and thousands of men lost their lives. Some never made it off the boats.
Today, think about the sacrifices made by men and women who have gone before us. Think about the sacrifice made by Jesus who gave His life for our sins.
Now, may each one of us be willing to do our part to make our nation, our towns, our churches and schools a better place to live.
