On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Many lost their lives this day but those who survived went on liberate Europe and to help win World War II.
John F. Kennedy’s charge to America was to go to the moon. It gave this nation something to strive for and to work towards. He made the resources available for hundreds of highly skilled engineers, designers, technicians, doctors and so many more to reach the moon in July of 1969. It’s amazing what they accomplished back then with the technology of the era. Unfortunately Kennedy would not live to see it come to reality but his dream opened a whole new universe.
I admire this woman for all the things she has done in her reign. She hasn’t been perfect but she has shown strength, character and grace under pressure. Although I am an American I consider her my queen. Long live The Queen!

Anyone who tries to revise history or to deny any event happens puts his or her own life in doubt too. If these events don’t happen more than likely any one of us does not exist.
People who are trying to change history do so in order to advance their agenda. It’s important to educate oneself and listen to the people who bore witness to events. The last thing we should do is go to an entertainer or a reality star to be informed about real things that real people experienced.
This Bitstrip came up in my history feed on Timehop. It’s an oldie but a goody. You don’t have to paint everything green to have a happy St. Patrick’s Day.
This happened a few weeks before I was born.
When man landed on the moon it was a great moment in history. We the American people were challenged by President John F. Kennedy to soar to new heights and to do something awesome. It required the work of brilliant and talented people to make it happen. We haven’t done anything like it since. Maybe we need to dream again.
King Henry VIII was a player and a slayer and a historic figure. He was married six times. To find out more about his love life visit The Historic Royal Places website to find out more about his wives who made history of their own. Some survived and some died. I think he was a boorish and cruel man but he isn’t the only leader in world history to be like that.
It wasn’t roses and candy for St. Valentine. He had it rough. Not a whole lot of love there.
