When we visited the cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy France this past summer, both Mr Fox and I were moved to tears. It was remarkable how deeply it affected us.
All of our lives we’ve heard stories about World War II but standing in the American Cemetery among the more than 9000 white marble crosses that mark the graves of soldiers who died in battle on the beaches of Normandy. It was shocking. For us, it brings a whole new depth of meaning to Remembrance Day.
