Patriotism: The Wall That Heals

pin20

Last month we saw the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall also known as The Wall That Heals. You can check out the website and find out when it will be in your area.

My goal when I went was not only to acknowledge the sacrifices people have made for our country but also to capture patriotism. I reread one of Bethadilly’s blog posts for photography inspiration and went to the memorial.

19 total people from DeKalb County never came home from the war. They had pictures of those soldiers set up by their name. A flag was set up for every soldier in the country that did not make it. I saw some vets from the war visiting. Some day I will travel to DC again, but until then, I am glad I have this to visit.
