These People Worked Really Hard To Create Something. Seeing It From Above Will Absolutely Blow You Away.
All of our most impressive achievements in human history – the pyramids of Giza, the lighthouse of Alexandria, and the hanging gardens of Babylon – are the result of tireless effort and collaboration.
This gorgeous, monumental effort was no different.
It took 60 volunteers from around the world along with 500 residents to create.
They painstakingly etched the bodies of 9,000 fallen soldiers from D-Day into the sand.
The effort was led by the artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss to commemorate those who sacrificed dearly on June 6, 1944.
The work is titled The Fallen 9000.
Everyone threw themselves into the effort, even though they knew with the tide it couldn’t last forever.
Here those who served in the D-Day landings will be remembered.
It includes all those civilians, Germans, and allied forces who died during the D-Day beach landings.
The original team was just a few volunteers.
But as word spread of what they were trying to accomplish nearly 500 residents pitched in too, and built this beautiful memorial together.
D-Day was one of the most significant days in our world and forever changed the course of history. These men were all a part of it, and this memorial stands as a stark reminder of how costly war can be. Share this important memory with your friends by clicking below.
