    And may we never forget to take a stand against evil in order to save others.

    Looking out over Omaha beach, I will never forget the sense that all those spirits are still present there.

    I was there in 1987 and in the museum there were many vets with their families showing them where that vet had landed Very moving for us all. I’ve been back since and can’t reconcile the bucolic atmosphere that reigns on the beaches now with what went on then. Not a criticism, just an eerie feeling. I wish more Americans could experience Normandy. We’d value our Democracy even more

    We spent a very emotional day there several years ago. What brave men! We shall never forget!

    It was impossible to not cry, looking at those remaining few incredibly brave veterans, who must have grieved so much and so many times for their lost comrades. In watching, I was struck by the wisdom of the United States’ current commitment to combat aggression against Ukraine from the very beginning of Russia’s invasion, rather than procrastinating as the aggression attempted to spread into other European countries.

    Thanks for sharing, Linda!

    Oh Linda. Thank you for sharing. I haven’t been yet but your pictures make me want to go soon! My husband, Michael, has always wanted to go. My father was able to visit before his death as his brother served in the war. Safe travels and thanks again for letting me see through your words and photos.

    Thank you for sharing this moving tribute to the bravery of so many, in the face of such odds. I hope to get there one day, but your posts about it in this and previous blogs will suffice for now. I appreciate this very much, Linda.
