June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.”
More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end on June 6, the Allies gained a foot- hold in Normandy. The D-Day cost was high -more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded — but more than 100,000 Soldiers began the march across Europe to defeat Hitler.

My fellow Americans and friends around the world: We do not fully understand how or why the ancient civilizations destroyed each other.
Upon the testimony of the ancients, corroborated by history and modern discoveries we know that there was only the yawing for power and wealth. This aspect is a very important point to learn from the old civilizations.
We should learn how we can avoid disasters and ruins.
I note more and more: Now is a fabulous time during which the human mind developing itself in every direction and triumphs in all directions. All of us can create masterpieces, which spring from the same magic of the universe…. Let us walk together, hand in hand in Peace and Freedom around the World – Have a Happy Week :*
