Vimy Ridge

One of our stops in Europe last fall was Vimy Ridge, a First World War Canadian battle site.  We went to the memorial – of course we went to the memorial.  David’s already been the the Somme, and we went on to Passendale a few days later.  It’s amazing how much WWI history looms large in the lives of Canadians.  It’s amazing how the sites, of battles now almost a century ago, can make me cry.
