Normandy France 2019

My husband and I were fortunate enough to visit France during spring break on this 75th anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy. Over 10,000 soldiers lost their lives to “keep Europe and the rest of the world free” as stated on a plaque sent from the Governor from the state of Indiana at a museum in Caen, France.  Each of the 50 states sent its own memorial to represent their soldiers.

It was so emotional to see in person and realize what a debt we owe to those brave young men who stood up against evil and turned the tide of the war.   We saw firsthand the Atlantic Wall put up by the Germans, the bunkers that served as their headquarters, and their weapons and equipment that made them almost successful.

But nothing compared to learning about and seeing photos of the amazing floating docks that made it possible to drive Allied tanks on the beach from the warships. 

There is a statue of President Eisenhower along the highway and people of Normandy and Caen, and all along the coast, absolutely love Americans and know what we did for them.  

It was truly the most moving place I have ever visited. The 360-degree theater that compiled actual footage of Operation Overlord from all points of view really captured the event was truly stunning. I think all Americans, English, French, and Canadians should travel there and see it in person to really appreciate our freedom.

2019 Scholastic Art- National Winner!!

The program is sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, which identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic talent and brings their work to a national audience. Founded in 1923, the Awards have grown to become the longest running, most prestigious recognition program for teens in the U.S. and the nation’s largest source of scholarships for creative young artists and writers. Past winners include Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, filmmaker Ken Burns and many others.
