 In Remembrance of D-Day
D-Day or the Day of Invasion
Took place on June sixth, forty four.
 One hundred fifty thousand brave troopers
Stormed beaches on Normandy’s shore!
An invasion of intelligent planning,
Coordination and top secret stance.
 Succeeded because of true bravery!
Not one inch of ground gained by chance!
By nightfall nine thousand were wounded
Or had shed their life’s blood in this stand…
Yet those soldiers remaining would rally
As thousands would trudge through the sand.
Each French coastal village knew freedom
 Germany gave up in defeat.
War with its chaos and confusion
Made the taste of each victory sweet!
D-Day was a break through statistic!
A shot in the arm for success!
Let’s remember and honor the heroes…
Whom the French now seem scorned to address.
 That America proved to be mighty
Was, in part, because men knelt to pray.  
God walked on those Normandy beaches!
He was there through the hell of D-Day!

•There is… a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:8)
