To the editor:
Twelve years ago we stood at the crest of a hill in Normandy, France, overlooking the beach code named “Omaha.”
On the map, the location we were visiting was listed as the American Cemetery. In fact, we were in an outdoor cathedral. This hallowed ground with its row upon row of silent witnesses celebrates the idea that a free people can and should govern themselves. The sacrifice of those buried there continues to allow us to live in a freedom not shared by other peoples of the world.
The June 6th edition of the Cody Enterprise failed to make any mention of the significance of that day in the history of our country and our world. While we respect the need for a local paper to feature local news, we regret the failure to note an event that went far to guarantee local freedom.
