Days one, two, and three; The beaches of Normandy
Ed and I walked east from Omaha Beach to the River Orne at Ouistrenham, and now have turned inland. It was a moving experience walking in the footsteps of so many who sacrificed so much. The American cemetery, the memorials, and the scars still visible even 70 years past leave you in awe of that generation. It was for this notion of sacrifice that we chose the beach at Omaha as our start point for Paris.
If a generation comes together recognizing a threat and is willing to sacrifice, great achievements are in its grasp. May the nations of this world and most certainly its people, be willing to do so for our Planet and our future.
