French families adopt American graves

As seen on NPR:

Eight years ago, a French couple founded an organization that adopts graves of American servicemen who died during the Normandy invasion of World War II. The volunteer group encourages French families to lay flowers on the graves when the Americans' own families can't do it.

Damn, that's cool.

While the governments of our respective nations may quarrel, it's good to see the people of France and the US remember the sacrifices one made for the other.
