We started our day at the Bayeux Tapestry, unaware that this sequential record of the Battle of Hastings would be completely eclipsed by the majesty of the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. From the D-Day Museum at Arromanches to Point du Hoc, we followed the history and bravery that we have always read about but never understood until we stood where they stood and imagined what they saw. As we entered the hallowed grounds of the American Cemetery, each girl tried to find her connection to the people who gave their lives for what was right and good. Passing through the rows of fallen comrades, we noticed names that represented every nationality--there were stars of David among the thousands of Christian crosses. After today every girl was changed forever.
