stark reminder

Our local Veterans for Peace reminds us every Memorial Day of those who have fallen in the wars of choice since 2002. Their tribute, running along one of our main roads, displays a tombstone replete with personal information, for each soldier who has given their life in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is a stark necessary reminder of an unnecessary conflict.

My photos are of the road ahead of me and the road behind me. The tribute has run the length of one side of the road, approximately 1/2 mile, and has started up the other side for another 1/2 mile. My hopes are that it won't make it all the way back.
