The Normandy American Cemetery - Normandy, France-My grandmother's brother, William Wallace Bogle, is buried there, he died in Brittany France on September 7, 1944, fighting in WWII.  My father was named "Wallace" in memory of his uncle.  I would love to be able to go and lay flowers on his grave, nobody in our family has ever been to the cemetery.

“Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last. Imagine that you are doing this but that it is essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature…in order to found that edifice on its unavenged tears. Would you consent to be the architect on those conditions? Tell me. Tell the truth.”     Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
