THE MOVING WALL

I knew I would like living in town instead of in the country. So many things go on in towns. I saw the Vets come to town escorted by many Harley's last week. I had no idea why but knew it had something to do with the Holiday.

Across the street from our house is a park. I went yesterday, without a camera, to see what was going on. I was in AWE. This little town has a very special guest this weekend...The Moving Wall.

The men and women who lost their life to the Vietnam war would be amazed to see this wall that moves from town to town so families can honor those they lost. I saw families in tears, a football and photo laid on the ground beneath the name of a loved one. Many Vets in full dress and many Harley riders, also Vets, giving speeches in honor of those fallen.

Today I returned to take photo's for those who have never seen The Moving Wall...Enjoy

While visiting a cousin in Virginia in 1989, he took us (Mama, son Jonathan, and me) to D.C. to see the sights. The Wall brought me to tears even though I personally lost no one close to me during that conflict. Tears rolled down my cheeks as I walked the entire length.
