We drove from Ohio and stopped here on our way to Gettysburg. Thought we'd see a few covered bridges and the memorial on the way. I wasn't prepared for how much this would touch my heart. It's simple and lovely .. in the midst of fields of wildflowers surrounded by hills and mountains. To see their pictures and put yourself in their place .... it was just powerful. But right now others cann't see it because our gov't is closed .... shame on them. To ever close a memorial .... it's just heartbreaking. I didn't take the usual pictures of the memorial or photos of those they honored. this is the fields of flowers.
in the marble memorial the names are etched simply and theres one that is etched even more subtly noting "unborn child" when we read that ... well it touched us.
