So we spent several days in Normandy. I'm sure many Allbuffers have visited, but it was my first trip to the region. For those of you who haven't visited, I would encourage everyone to walk the shores of Omaha Beach and between the gravestones of the American Cemetery outside of Colleville. If you can do it without a quivering chin, and damp eyes, you're more stoic than me. Also, the Caen Memorial was impressive. We returned for a second visit in as many days. It's nice to be in a place where American flags fly from many homes and there's a welcome word for those who speak with our accent. Perspective restored.
