Those attending the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy on Friday will be on hallowed ground, surrounded by the headstones of those who, unfortunately, did not return.
I have been here three times now. I still cannot walk into the American Cemetery in Colleville Sur Mer without my eyes watering. It is stunning, sobering, moving.
When you write, and share stories for a passion, and a living, a day like today here in Normandy, is one you dream of. But that dream-like day, comes with an emotional price, no matter if you’re an observer, or the writer.
