This past summer, 10 Bishop Grandin students took part in a new History course in which they toured battlefield sites in Europe. Here is one student’s impressions:
Military History was not just another class that I took over the summer, but rather it was a class that i got to experience. I honestly have no words to describe what I felt as we were walking down Dieppe Beach. I could not wrap my head around the fact that thousands of soldiers were risking their lives for their country just a few feet away from where I was standing. Visiting cemeteries, seeing the headstones of young soldiers, and reading the little poems the families have left for their loved ones as a final goodbye was so heartbreaking, yet so inspirational. All I could do was thank the soldiers for the sacrifices each of them made, because if it was not for them we would not be able to have the life we have today. Being able to be a part of this experience was such an honor and a blessing, and I hope one day more students have the opportunity to take this class, for it is truly an unforgettable experience.
Any students interested in this course for Summer, 2015 should see Mr. Bieche
