    It is good to be recognized when you are doing something that is so very worthy. Well done, sir. Well done.

    I always keep in mind this very,very naive (that's what a lot of people say from it,here) idea,that a couple of decades ago,thousands of young Americans (in this precise case,i'm not ignoring the English youthness) crossed the sea to give back freedom to my parents.
    My duty is to honor their memory by any means.And this way appeared to me like the best way to connect the past and my present.
    Let me copy you the link to a heart-breaking and also hopefull youtube vid.I think it means all what i can feel for these brave and so young guys.I'm not joking,this is one of the movest vid on the feeling of being indebted to somebody....

    Good Lord!

    Not exactly the way I wanted to start the day, wiping my eyes. Very touching video, Seb! Thank you for your works. I was in my nation's capitol last summer, on holiday, and took my children to the war memorials. We thanked every veteran we saw.

    Also pics of my president's home. Those are sharpshooters on the roof! For the freedom that building has given this country and others, folks here shoot at at! I can't figure it out. No honor, no dignity, no respect, no joke. A dispatching is in order.

    I shoot with Minolta, they shoot with lead. LOL Of course, I have to throw a tastless joke into the mix.

    I was there in 1997,the day Lady Diana died.When hearing me speaking french with my bro(he used to live in Philae),people in the streets stared at us "aren't you ashamed to be french????"...Nice souvenir,héhéhéhé....
    The memorial wall for Viet Nam casualties let me on my ass....One thing sure ,you Americans,you know how to give goose bumps....
    For the vid,i was so proud of this man,so simple,with his poor words of English,he managed to break the heart of the whole family of Amos.
    I think the youngest of the family were to come back to the States with a high opinion of their homeland....
