Memorial Day 2019: Remembering Our Fallen

Adding comments on dotphoto albums

Memorial Day will be different for me this year. I happened to be in Washington, D.C. on Friday, and saw a new memorial along the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

Remembering Our Fallen was inspired by a 2010 newspaper story about a father whose grief was even greater four years after his son had died in Iraq because he felt his son had been forgotten, and the war was not even over.

The happy faces of the fallen — most of them in their teens and twenties — shine with youth and promise in this powerful memorial. One cannot help but reflect upon the grief of thousands of families who have suffered and continue to suffer. I will be thinking of them this Memorial Day.

This is a traveling memorial. If you can’t get to Washington, check here to see when Remembering Our Fallen may be near you.
