Even the Germans recognize it was the best thing ever to happen to them
Opening the ceremony, President Hollande paid tribute to the more than 150,000 troops that parachuted or waded from motor gunboats onto the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944 during World War II.
He said the gathering of world leaders for the event should help to serve peace and, "there where it is threatened, to find solutions and ways out so that a conflict does not degenerate into war."
"I want to salute the courage of the Germans, victims them too of Nazism, embroiled in a war that was not theirs, that should not have been theirs," he added, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel also among the guests.
Pssst, Barack; listen to him.
