The D-Day Beaches of Normandy, France

D-Day Beaches

Standing on this hallowed ground more than 40 years after the D-Day landing, I felt the collective spirit of all the soldiers and their adversaries who gave their lives for a cause they believed in.  I have never been so affected or humbled by a place before or since.

The day we arrived was foggy and salt air blanketed the banks like a protective guard - like a stern librarian who holds a finger to her lips to remind the careless that precious things are concealed within and those that visit must be given their due peace in which to consider them earnestly.
