“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

"Everybody dies. Not everybody really lives."

The saddest sound in the world is a man saying, "I wish I'd have done that."

D-Day Anniversary

We were in Normandy for the D-Day anniversary and ran into this gentleman at Omaha Beach. Ninety years old now, he was a 21 year old sailor in the Royal Navy on D-Day and served on the HMS Prince Albert, offloading soldiers onto Sword Beach in the British sector.

It was a real thrill and a rare privilege to shake hands with a WWII D-Day veteran.
