2014 marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy during the Second World War. In June of 2014, students from Nantyr Shores Secondary School had the opportunity to travel to Normandy, France to take part in the very special D-Day ceremonies. For many, this trip was both eye-opening and life-altering. From making memories and a life-long bond with their fellow travellers to reflections on what life would have been like for soldiers not much older than themselves, these students demonstrate the importance and a true understanding of the meaning of "Lest We Forget". The journey was heavily supported by many organizations within the Innisfil community. The students that participated on the trip were able to share some of their memories and experiences with Our Stories Innisfil. In this clip, Emily and Megan discuss the lead up to the ceremony, sharing lunch with veterans and walking the street to hundreds of people cheering. Mason described the honour of carrying the Canadian Flag during the walk to Juno Beach and the silence that came from 5000 students honouring the heroes.
