OMAHA BEACH

I stand before greatness
… a witness to faithfulness
A picture of Omaha beach…
crosses as far as the eye can reach
… Hands helpless at my side
… on my face tears of pride…
for these brave soldiers…
who challenged Hitler’s Mob…
and etched their names in history
… by simply doing their job

(Not far down the road…
many French people grumble… and dance
Why do they not remember… the blood of Heroes
… that bought the freedom of France…)
