Everywhere we’ve gone, we’ve seen signs of WWII. I’m writing this in Amsterdam and today is 4 May. Exactly 4 minutes ago, Holland stopped everything for a moment of remembrance. At exactly 8pm, the whole country stops and remembers the losses – especially from WWII. And tomorrow is Liberation Day.
On Wednesday of last week (29 April), we visited the Caen WWII Memorial Museum, the American Cemetary, Omaha Beach and the Pointe du Hoc Ranger memorial.
America gave a lot for the freedom of the world.
