For most of us in the United States, Memorial Day means a day off of work and a barbecue. In fact we might not even think of those who have gone before to secure our freedom. You might remember I traveled to France in April. While I was teaching at the Paris event, my husband Jay and Dave Schuh (yes, Debby's husband) took a train/tour out to the Normandy coast to visit the WWII landing beaches, museum in Caen and the American cemetery. What a moving experience it was for them to visit these hallowed grounds, hear the stories of sacrifice and courage, and visit the cemeteries of those who did not return home. So please remember to say a little pray of thanks today for those that have served our country in the past as well as those serving today.
