Testimonies

Under threatening skies, more than 100 grammar school children walked from their respective schools in Saint James to the cemetery, arriving at the gate behind the Cenotaph. They assembled on the stairs in front of the Memorial where they joined the veterans and Scouts. After a brief explanation they followed the veterans to the plot areas where employees, pre-positioned by the buckets of roses would assist all. Like a well-oiled machine all graves and WOM were flowered in forty minutes. After some parting pictures by the Cenotaph the children walked back to town.
It was a memorable moment for all including the employees. One teacher came and related he had heard a number of the children actually talk to headstones. The duty of remembrance will surely be accomplished.

I am an American who knows that the French American friendship can not be erased by words. Feelings go much deeper than that.
Your gesture says more than words can ever hope to say.
Thank you "
