When you stand along Omaha Beach, in one part of a region, where thousands of Allied and German troops were killed, wounded or went missing during the Battle of Normandy, living life comes to a stand still.
Sadness creeps in and a deep appreciation for the ones who gave their life, to fight for future generations, is all so ever present.
Today, as an American, I stop and thank the Veterans who gave their lives so that I am able to have freedom to live as I choose.
Just a few photos today of our journey through a place where life and death are pressed together in Normandy, France. Happy Memorial Day!
