Jour JNantes, Spring 2013

This weekend we had a field trip to Normandy to see the American cemetery, the tapestry in Bayeux, and visit a museum. I have to say that the museum and the cemeteries (both german and american) have left lasting impressions on me. I've learned about World War II more times that I can count on my fingers and seen so many movies that have reenacted the D-Day scene, but actually seeing it in person was astounding. I didn't think I would cry but after walking through what seemed like a never ending field of tombstones, I couldn't help myself. It brought everything that I had read in textbooks to life.
