June 6th 1944 may have been a lifetime away yet the date will live on forever as being the day that was the beginning of the end for Hitler’s dreams! I visited 74 years to the day the allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy in Northern France & they were not going to stop until they reached Berlin. Today if you take a walk along the miles of sandy beaches at Colleville-sur-Mer you’d be forgiven not to know about the carnage that took place there 74 years ago. However if you head high above Omaha Beach you’ll find the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Here lie the bodies of 9,387 brave American soldiers who lost their lives to give us peace.
