Friday Fun at the Beach

I took this picture at Omaha Beach in Normandy, the site of the D-Day Invasion of 1944. I know that some folks feel a little weird about people playing here in this place where so many people died, and I get that, but I think it's a kind of resurrection. We Christians believe that God brings life out of death, and so it makes me glad to see a happy doggie cavorting in the waves and people enjoying themselves on the beach and in the water. It is no longer a place of death, but still, with all the monuments (not to mention the massive cemetery) surrounding the area, there is no way that anyone will ever forget what happened on Omaha Beach.
