As we remember those of the Allied forces who fought and died this day in 1944 for our nations and our forefathers, we would also like to take a moment to remember that we have men and women in our services fighting and dying for our nations and for us today.
For those who spent the day lying at the beach today we hope all had some thought of gratitude for those who laid down their lives for us on this day and those other days throughout our history as free nations, protected by the lives of free men and women heeding the call to their duty.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep
The LORD [is] thy keeper: the LORD [is] thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Psalm 121: 1- 8.
