Normandy - a Journey Not to Forget on the Anniversary of D-Day
Travel connects one to historic experience in ways that reading or hearing about it never can. I will never forget certain moments in certain places where for an instance I have felt the link across time and space in a way I never could before. Visiting Normandy, being at the place where American soldiers waded through those rough waters, climbed those steep hills only to be met by gunfire and for many death. The field of white crosses extending to the end of the plateau that meets the drop onto the beach below is so stirring I cannot find the words that don't sound trite in describing it. Only the pictures tell story well. And in humble tribute to those soldiers that died 68 years ago, the American Cemetery at Normandy remains.
