It’s hard for me to believe but it was three years ago that we were here. So much has happened since, and so little. The “so little” part of it kind of hits you when you walk among the thousands of graves at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach, where we were today. It looks like it did three years ago, which is as it should be. This place shouldn’t change. To call being here an awesome experience doesn’t get it right. There are no words that get it right.
I tried to express it three years ago in words and don’t think I can do better now than I did then. So do me a favor and read that post.
On that note, maybe read the post I wrote three years ago about our visit then to Utah Beach, too.
So, Omaha Beach is where we went today. We followed our two plus hour tour of the cemetery and accompanying museum by driving down to Omaha Beach itself. The weather was beautiful and hundreds of people frolicked on the sand and in the water with the tide out. We ate our lunches and enjoyed the company of dear friends. We did that on Omaha Beach.
No more words…
