They Gave Their Tomorrow For Our Today

This is photojournalism from Huff Post UK  with clever integration of  current photos and 70 year old shots from D-Day.               A German body lies where he fell in the street.

Tourists on the way to the beach pass one of the German bunkers.

Children play in the sacred sand of Omaha Beach.

German prisoners of war waiting for their transportation.

A family walking to the beach and the soldiers marching to their positions.

 

Debris on the beach  but  not the usual trash.

The rubble  and loss of the old villages have been rebuilt into new places for living and shopping.

Running  to take a bullet for freedom vs running to play soccer!

May we never forget the sacrifice and blood our heroes gave for our  freedom!

“They gave their  tomorrow for our today!”
