In honor of Memorial Day and those who have lost their lives fighting to preserve the freedoms we enjoy, I'm flashing back to 1990 when I visited the American Cemetery at Normandy. When you see all of those pristine white crosses, it's a humbling experience and an image that stays with you forever. All of these crosses representa soldier that never made it home. And this was only a glimpse of a sea of crosses and Stars of David.
This image is another I won't forget...the mosaic that covers the ceiling of the chapel on the grounds of the cemetery.
"Thank you" doesn't seem to go far enough when the gift is a life. But I will extend a Thank You all the same and a prayer for all of those soldiers still putting themselves in harms way.
