Thank you for telling the world what good leadership is all about yesterday. As leaders of your communities today, and of the world tomorrow, it is inspiring to see how well you understand the “rights and responsibilities” that Americans exhibited to demonstrate their “leadership and legacy in history.”
Your task today will be to interpret the message that one leader, Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower, sent to troops just prior to the D-Day invasion. Tomorrow will mark the 70th anniversary of these landings. Use this time to reflect on the #Sacrifice4Freedom that was made that day, and respond to today’s prompt: Ike told his men “the hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you.” Why did he say that? #Sacrifice4Freedom.
Below are the “leading” tweets from yesterday:
- @oabaird @NationalHistory leadership will either define, or destroy a war. Good leadership will define it, and lead it to victory #Sacrifice4Freedom
