SHARE CAPTION ONLY: REMEMBERING FIGHT FOR FREEDOM IN NORMANDY

Some 2,000 schoolchildren from Normandy gather to form the word "liberte" (freedom) on France's Utah Beach. The gathering Monday was part of preparations for next year's commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Allied troops' landing in Normandy June 6, 1944, to invade Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II.
