I remember learning about the Bayeux Tapestry at school and drawing Harold with his arrow in his eye. To stand and see the actual cloth... It was an amazing moment. The museum is so well done.

To say the day was one of quiet reflection would be an understatement - it was exceptionally moving and was a day that made us proud of the ideals our country is founded on and its allegiance to helping others even in the most terrible situations.
