This is one of those stories whose hearing arouses an exceptional surge of enthusiasm and gratifying goodwill. It hurls high the day, elevating the moment to a superior plane of insight and value. It speaks of brotherhood and kinship and sets aglow the human heart. For the hour, we lay aside disagreements and disappointments, political slants and personal and national agenda.
“The French Will Never Forget” organized an extraordinary gathering of approximately 2500 people in Omaha Beach, Normandy for July 4 th 2007. The crowd formed on the sand the letters of the phrase: “FRANCE WILL NEVER FORGET”, aimed at honoring the fallen American heroes who scarified (sacrificed) their lives to liberate France at the end of WW II.
The Embassy of France has posted stunning pictures and a great deal of information here. I give honor to these people who in such a magnificent way have expressed their gratitude to the United States of America, and who have so honored those who fell in battle in order to liberate France at the end of World War II.
