A Day.......

Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It is overcast and eerie where I am today. The sky is dark and there is rain in the air. Unusual and foreboding is the feeling. I am thinking about the Landing Beaches in France now where I had this same feeling. There was a big difference though, the beaches in Normandy were and are foreboding for real. Seeing them some years ago gave me chills. You see them in old videos and today everywhere but the reality of this was overwhelming. I could never have imagined the depth of those peaks, the large gullies and the terrain. I don't think I could have climbed these in my thirties without a barrage of incoming fire. How anyone survived is a question I couldn't and can not answer.

Young men in harms way. Seeing things with my own eyes has always been important to me and changes the way in which I relate to the world. To those who survived and to those who did not I am eternally grateful.

We have the same day here, and in a bit we are going to go for along walk on the beach (low tide).  When we were leaving Paris, many were coming in for the 75th celebration.  A

While watching speeches made this morning at Normandy, I couldn't help but look at the aged faces of those who participated in that battle and wonder how after so much strife and pain, mankind often still chooses war to peace.  So many lessons these past 75 years, that continue to not be taken!

Sheila - there was heroism in the face of abject danger.  Watching the faces of those on the landing ships is very hard to do.

Amazing stories told today among the survivors. No one claimed that they were heroes. They are.

Morning Sheila.

While my dad served, he did not go over the pond.  I believe he was in Panama when D-Day was launched.  One of these days I also want to go there, just to get the feeling
