75 years ago today, the Allies landed on Omaha Beach prepared to face sudden death in order to defend liberty. Despite a heavy death toll, the Allies came out the victors that day.
As the Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp wrote, “what won the battle, against all odds, was the ability of common men to do great things, to overcome a challenge that seemed impossible, and, through courage and inner will, to come out better in the end than any number-cruncher thought possible. That spirit was seen on D-Day.”
When they faced the “overwhelming force” of Germans on the high ground, the Americans “took matters into their own hands,” Philipp wrote. “At the beach where Pyle landed, against all odds and all normal protocol, Navy ships rolled near the shore and went head-to-head with the German guns.”
May the spirit of the Allies continue to live in America – the spirit of a republic, where independent people “take it on themselves” to stand against tyranny.
