Turn Off Your TV for 30 Seconds at 3PM Eastern Time

(The traditional time to take a moment of remembrance on this day.)

Facing the English Channel atop a bluff in northern France is this cemetery, (captured here on Google Maps) final resting place for 9,387 American servicemen who lost their lives in the D-Day landings and ensuing operations. To the right in the semicircular garden are the Walls of the Missing, on which are inscribed another 1,557 names.

  • An uncle of mine went to Vietnam and never returned. All that is left is the memories of people in my family and a name etched in stone. Then I get asked why I'm not fond of wars. As if I needed a big reason for it.
