6-6-06 vs 6-6-44
Am I the only one sick and tired of all this "666" bulls**t?? How many people do you think died today because of some satanic intervention?? And how about these pregnant soccer moms trying to keep their legs closed for an extra 24 hours? Live with it!
And,..to put things into perspective, here's what hell is reaaly like - D-Day, June 6, 1944. Thousands of brave men stormed an nearly-impenetrable beach to begin the final assault on Hitler's insanity.
We stand today at a place of battle, one that 40 years ago saw and felt the worst of war. Men bled and died here for a few feet of - or inches of sand, as bullets and shellfire cut through their ranks. About them, General Omar Bradley later said, "Every man who set foot on Omaha Beach that day was a hero."
Finally, I leave you with some of the greatest words spoken about that day, given by The Great Communicator himself:
Today, in their memory, and for all who fought here, we celebrate the triumph of democracy. We reaffirm the unity of democratic people who fought a war and then joined with the vanquished in a firm resolve to keep the peace.
From a terrible war we learned that unity made us invincible; now, in peace, that same unity makes us secure. We sought to bring all freedom-loving nations together in a community dedicated to the defense and preservation of our sacred values.
