Indelible Memorials

As Memorial Day approaches, my thoughts go beyond to the impact of memorials on each of us.

What each individual experiences when visiting a memorial is undoubtedly unique based on their knowledge of events, their back ground and where they are in their life journey

Berlin Holocaust Memorial

Normandy France

9/11 Memorial
