"Miracle of Dunkirk" Movie Opens 7. 21.17

The story of the evacuation from Dunkirk during World War 2 is one of the most riveting true stories that you will ever hear. It now is comingto the big screen July 21 - [Watch Trailer] It is a story of heroes, common and uncommon. It is a story of national valor and courage, and for that reason the story is beloved and cherished. What happened at this little fishing village in the north of France in 1940?... It was one of the most remarkable escapes in history prompting many churches in England to sing Psalm 124:

"...if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us; the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, the raging waters would have swept us away. Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird from the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."

The Miracle of Dunkirk is a reason why Americans speak English today rather thank German. It enabled the Allies to fight another day. And fight they did. When the Allies returned to the northern beaches of France on June 6, 1944, the tide was about to turn. Victory in Europe arrived ten months later.
