I had seen the traveling wall and very much wanted to see the original. I found the name of the hometown boy I was seeking in one of the many guide books and we moved towards the wall to find "him". It is hard to explain how it hits you when you realize that from the shortest wall to the tallest, there are names, and more names, and more names....and each one is a son, a husband, a brother, a daughter, a sister, a daddy, a mommy, a special someone who never came home. To stand next to a soldier with tears running down his face as he touches the names of his buddies who didn't make it back. There is so much living happening at this wall every moment you are there.
Be prepared to be touched and to cry.
