Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss (Sand in Your Eye) do some amazing things with sand but what they pulled of for National Peace Day this past Monday is amazing.  Check out how they honored the 9000  Civilians, Germans Forces and Allies that died during the D-day landings, 6th June during WWII.

The day they decided to do this temporary memorial, 60-70 people from all over the world showed up but it was clear that would not be enough people to do 9000 sand imprints.  It was only a short time later, 100's literally showed up and pulled off a miracle.
