Is There Such a Thing As Miracles?

The worst weather in 20 years has descended on the English Channel, likely delaying the Normandy Invasion. Then, astonishingly, the weather breaks.

At a time when weather forecasts cannot reliably extend beyond 48 hours, a Royal Navy ship, located due south of Iceland, reports an unexpected event. Despite the current weather, the barometric pressure is rising.

The rising pressure means there might be a very narrow window of opportunity for the Allies to make their crossing from Britain to Normandy.

The greatest amphibious invasion in history cannot move forward without a break in the weather. When that highly unexpected, extremely unlikely break actually occurs, the Allies commence their cross-channel expedition.

Sometimes people refer to these unexpected events as “miracles.” Do you think that is a good term? Why, or why not?
