Scene while walking: February 20, 2013

I had time recently to walk by many of the memorials in Washington, D.C. One of the most moving for me is the Vietnam Memorial – a wall of names memorializing lives cut far too short. On this day I saw a young boy standing on the shoulders of a man and making an etching of someone’s name. I have in my mind all three are related, and the name he was capturing is a man he never got to know.

  1. That is such a wonderful memorial. I took my favorite photo of my dad standing in front of it. He didn’t do an etching, but he was standing in front of the name of a man he flew with while in that war. If I can find it, I’ll scan it and show it to you.
