A Prayer written by FDR on D-Day
Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.
Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

Sonic and Chili's join restaurants with no guns policy
Two more restaurant chains are adding their names to the list of eateries that have adopted a no-guns policy. Sonic Drive-In and Chili's Grill & Bar issued statements Friday asking patrons to leave their guns at home. USA Today reported Saturday that the announcements were prompted by recent demonstrations by open-carry activists who brought rifles and shotguns into Sonic, Chili's and Chipotle Mexican Grill outlets in Texas.

Right to try laws give hope to terminally ill
The right to try experimental, potentially life-saving drugs is coming soon to a state near you, giving fresh hope to terminally ill patients who have run out of treatment options. Louisiana became the nation’s second state to join the budding “right-to-try” revolution yesterday when Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a bill allowing terminally ill patients to access medications that could save their lives, even if they are not approved by the FDA.

Teacher fired for unusual activity
Cassendre Fiering, a 45-year-old substitute instructor at Public School 189 in Bronx, New York, was canned by the Department of Education in December for actually seeking dating advice from her young students. Investigators say the woman, who is also a part-time actress, asked her 9-year-old pupils to help her choose between two men she was dating.

Officials under fire for dumping Illegal Immigrants in US
Scores of illegal immigrants, caught by authorities in Texas trying to sneak into the country via the Rio Grande Valley, are being flown, bused and then abandoned out of state in places like Arizona, New York and Maryland. If the immigrants had been from Mexico, authorities would release them back across the border. But these would-be immigrants come from Central American countries, such as El Salvador and Guatemala, and trying to get them back to their country of origin has been a costly and largely unsuccessful endeavor.

Normandy Landings
The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the restoration of the French Republic and contributed to an Allied victory in the war.
