|American Cemetery - Omaha Beach|
Freedom is something that I, like so many people, take for granted; something that I enjoy without thinking about.
That freedom came at a price.
In summer, we paid a visit to the American war cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy. I wanted my children to take it in and see the truth. I wanted to see it for myself, too.
It is an ugly truth.
These places are truly moving, awful, horrendous and shocking reminders of the price my freedom came at. The endless rows of white crosses quietly press that truth into your soul.
And we all need reminding of that.
We must never forget.
To those people, those millions of people, who paid for my freedom.
To those people who still are paying for my freedom, all around the world.
