On this 70th Anniversary of D-Day I want to share some photos of our recent trip to Normandy. It was truly a privilege to witness the D-Day landing beaches and small towns that played such an important role in World War II. If you ever get the chance to visit, please go, it will leave an imprint on your heart. I am forever grateful and in awe of the courage and sacrifice of so many to protect our freedom.

Henry playing in the sand on Omaha Beach
Watching Henry play on Omaha Beach made my heart ache for all the mamas that lost their boys on this stretch of sand. So today, as I remember the thousands of brave men who landed on those beaches, I’ll also be saying a prayer for peace for our children.

Nice job, Rachel. Each location truly does recall all the sacrifices made on June 6, 1944. Love the link to Reagan’s speech.
That is a very nice tribute and great photos!
