“In the invasion of France on D-Day, Nine Thousand Young Americans died on just one beach — Normandy. The total number of deaths of U.S. and Allied forces, as well as German defenders, in those first few days and weeks of the invasion is astounding. Yet today, tens of millions of uninformed, self-centered, spoiled, mentally lazy Americans –primarily those born after 1950, are ignorant of who initially created the great American Republic; what ideals and principles were established as our nation’s foundation; what price has been paid over the decades in the preservation of our country and our freedom; and in WWII who defeated the tyranny that was engulfing the entire world, and how many of our fellow Americans made the ultimate sacrifice. Not only do most of our two younger generations know little or nothing about this subject, but they really don’t care. The problem is not that young Americans are bad people. The cause, the neglect and the deficiency is that our colleges and universities have become Liberal-Left breeding rounds. It is time, indeed it is urgent, that every citizen is required to have a reasonable knowledge of this essential information if the United States is to endure.” — Dr. John Grady
A large percentage of our country doesn’t know of or care about Normandy. British artist Jamie, accompanied by numerous volunteers took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch into the sand 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen soldiers. Titled The Fallen 9000, the piece is meant as a stark visual reminder of those who died during the D-Day beach landings at Arromanches on June 6th, 1944 during WWII. The original team consisted of 60 volunteers, but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help with the temporary installation that lasted only a few hours before being washed away by the tide.
9,000 Fallen Soldiers Etched into the Sand on Normandy Beach to Commemorate Peace Day.
What is surprising is that nothing about this was seen here in the US. (Because our national media is essentially Leftist.) Someone from overseas had a friend that sent it with a note of gratitude for what the US started there.
Please share this with others who understand that freedom is not free, nor has it ever been. Send it on to everyone!
