Off to the side of the exhibit was a trailer full of items that have been recovered from the wall in Washington DC that was left by family and loved ones.
This part had me in tears!
Letters from mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, children, friends and strangers!
Boots, medals, pictures, a prosthetic leg, a baby sweater, the purple heart!
Again at first thought of a wall of names.
it doesn't seem like that big of a deal.
but when you learn the wall is in order of those that were killed from start of the war to end, some are still missing, they had names, family, friends but truthfully they had a whole life they hadn't even gotten the chance to start.
I know our country seems to be at a boiling point and there is so much hate and anger and mistrust.
I truly believe we can learn so much from history. we owe so much to those that fought for our rights to even have debates and live in this free country.
Why not start healing together and saying thank you. Learn from each other. listen. respect.
have sympathy for those that lost everything.
Here is the website for the traveling schedule of the wall that heals. I highly recommend going when it comes to a location near you.
