|Crucifix on the Coast of Normandy|
As I told many of our family and friends, Karen and I, along with Karen's parents (Jim and Corene Wilson) and Whitney Robichaux, are about to embark on a great adventure to France. The adventure is probably best described as a pilgrimage.
Actually, the trip will be two pilgrimages in one. First and foremost it will be a religious pilgrimage to some of the great shrines in the world (Lourdes, Never, Rue du Bac, Notre Dame in Paris) but also a pilgrimage to honor the greatest American generation and their sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy. Both will bring a lot of emotion and maybe a few tears.
Many of you have asked to be kept posted on our progress; and with today's technology, I hope to be able to provide updates on a regular basis on this blog while we travel.
So say a prayer for our safe travels and check out this site if you are interested in our progress.
