Then there’s the lyin’ king’s comment: “Norman who?”.
President Reagan gave that speech 31 YEARS ago, and it is still the “Gold Standard” for D-Day Speeches.
31 years and 4 presidents later, nobody has topped it.
Come on be nice...Barry says he does not feel bound by events that happened before he was born (hatched).
(hatched)Stop the comments that might offend snakes. They have the right to not be offended too you know. :>}
I was thinking lizard ala the ones from the “V” series.
It makes me want to weep at how far we've fallen since those days when we were a respected country and the world looked to us for leadership.
I haven’t heard, is Obama even commenting on it this year?
If he does, he’ll comment on the real “courage and bravery” of Bruthie Jenner that is so much greater than those who stormed the beaches for freedom.
Thank you for posting. Has always been my favorite. I agree - the best ever. He gave a speech and he really said something we could grab onto. Imagine that! Have we said goodbye to those days? For the sake of our children and grandchildren, I surely hope not.
I don’t! I also agree he was the greatest President in my lifetime.
Just to name some of the good ones...the Challenger (1986), Mr. Gorbachev Tear Down This Wall (1987) &
It’s hard to believe that I was 17 when the (Best One) Pont-du-Hoc (1984) speech was made
So much has happened since the Boys (of the Greatest Generation) sacrificed their lives 71 years ago today on the Beaches, the Drop Zones and in the Air above France. A lot of the brave Soldiers/Airmen/Sailors that I have known or briefly met in my life are gone or are reaching their twilight of life and will soon be rejoining their comrades in arms.
I just want to say again as I have always done growing up....Thank You for your Sacrifice of keeping Myself, my Family (by Blood or Marriage) and Friends...FREE!!
I pray to God that the United States of America is still around in the Future for my Children(s) - Children(s), Children. May they know the Joy of Freedom both through Worship, Work, Play & that you may have to Fight (and Die) for that Freedom and most importantly never take for Granted what it means to be an American!
You expressed my sentiments exactly. Reagan almost came to tears as he was saying those words. I really miss him.
