Photographer's Note

I hesitated to post this picture because I found that sad. But I was impressed by this American Cemetery and Memorial in Normandy, France and by the respect that showed the hundreds of visitors that were there.

9'387 soldiers are buried here. 9'386 were killed during the World War II and only one -a son of President Theodore Roosvelt- died during World War I.

I am more impressed by the fact that among these 9'387, there are 307 unknown burials. This shows, in my opinion, how terrible war is.
