Sono stato su questa spiaggia qualche anno fa. Sapendo che il giorno del D-day, su questa spiaggia, ci sono stati 3000 morti, veniva spontaneo parlare sottovoce. Sensazione stranissima. L'hai provata anche tu ?

Dear Lena

This is one of the beach in Normandy where allied army of USA and Great Britain landed in 1944 for the last attack against Hitler. On this wonderful beach they died more than 2000 persons... There is a sacred atmosphere on this beach in memory of it. I felt it. However I like to think that such a lot of people has died even to allow this beach to be again just a wonderful place to be enjoyed by free people. Many thanks for being here, it's always pleasant reading from you! Friendly greetings

Ne stavo parlando a Lena. Ho avuto i brividi, letteralmente. Questo è stato certamente un punto nodale della storia recente e non solo. Tuttavia, e questo non è alternativo, il tempo si è ripreso questa spiaggia, tutta la Normandia e il resto d'Europa. Penso che il sacrificio di quei soldati e dei civili francesi dell'entroterra sia onorato soprattutto da questa "semplice", normale libertà. Ti ringrazio infinitamente per esserti soffermato. Non c'entra niente con questa foto, quando torni in Sardegna? Un saluto cordiale
