What courage they had, walking up an open beach, crouching and running, crouching and running inland, into a blistering force of machine gun fire. It is beyond my imagination. Right now I have a moment of silence in remembrance.

When I watched "Saving Private Ryan" I had a hard time sitting through the scenes of the beach landing and I made myself sit there and watch it all, taking it all in. How dare I be upset when all I have to do is WATCH?
I can't fathom their bravery and am in awe each time I think about it.
