Two Marches ago, while vacationing in France, we walked through the military cemetery, after earlier visiting nearby Normandy Beach, where the majority of the casualties now resting in that cemetery lost their lives.
There was a “Visitors’ Book” where you could write in your name and where you’re from, and leave a comment if you cared to.
My comment included a single word:
While we celebrate the holiday, it’s worth taking a moment to remember those guys.
They were just regular people.
And they died really young.
