A few years ago I had the privilege of visiting the Normandy Beaches with my parents and friends. These friends had been so gracious to take us into their home and let us use it as a base to travel around Normandy and then to take us to the Normandy Beaches. We didn't see all of them but we got to see quite a bit. This was such a powerful experience and to me it represents what Memorial Day is all about.

Traveling is one of the best ways in life to learn about others and discover some of the best things about yourself in the process. It's not just about seeing the fantastic museums, classic monuments and famous works of architecture, although those are part of the experience. It's deeper than that.
