Grateful for Freedom

We owe so much, humanly speaking, to the many brave soldiers who have paid the ultimate price for freedom.  I came across this picture today.  It is a perfect example of the truism, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” 

What makes this picture so powerful is that it is a picture from the soldier’s perspective of the landing during D-Day, June 6, 1944.  We see what they saw.  Perhaps, in a minuscule way, a few of us can imagine the fear they must have felt.  But fewer still might know what it is to have this kind of courage as they move forward to defend–and die for–freedom.

Thank you.
