On this 70th anniversary of D-Day, I am happy to indulge in memories of my experience there (click here) on those Landing Beaches and at the Cemetery. Standing proudly and watching over the American Cemetery in Normandy is this stunning bronze sculpture titled “Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves”. We actually walked the beaches where those brave American soldiers landed and fought against the German invasion of France. In a word, amazing. Thank you soldiers for this, and all other battles fought in the past, being forged now, and those to come. We treasure our freedom, thanks to you.
