"To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts." Hebrews 4:7
D-Day, a day in history where a battle was fought and won on the shores of Normandy. The cost however, was very great as thousands of people gave their lives that day in the quest to gain and retrieve territory occupied and defended by enemy forces.
Many people who have memories of that great battle are still alive today. They remember that great day when the air was filled with the soundsof bombs, gun fire and air raids as wave upon wave of assaults were waged until the enemy had no choice but to retreat.
