On Omaha, men cried.

I’m a stranger

But it’s for me they died.

I’m every son.

I’m every daughter.

I’m everyone.

They had names.

They had gods.

They had dreams.

Every man bled on Normandy.

Every soldier lost.

They came back to bury the dead.

Thousands of questions asked.

Thousands of silent sighs.

Only one answer: Freedom

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”— Harper Lee
