D-Day Turns 64

You may not read a lot about this in the mainstream press, as the MSM ironically tends to ignore or insult those things that keep them free to pen whatever they please, but today marks the 64th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy.

As always, there’s no better way to commemmorate this anniversary than by replaying one of history’s best speeches: Ronald Reagan’s remarks at the U.S. Ranger Monument, Pointe du Hoc, France, June 6, 1984.

“We have learned bitter lessons from two world wars. It is better to be here ready to protect the peace, than to take blind shelter across the sea, rushing to respond only after freedom is lost.”

Update: It’s the anniversary of the beginning of the successful push to keep the Nazis from their goal of global domination, and what is Google honoring today? The birthday of Spanish painter Diego Velasquez.
