Time was to short. It seems like just yesterday, that I had talked to you in the store that you has worked by Nibbley Park. The next time I went there I was told about your service and the short time you had been in Country. I was so surprised at the news. If only we could have went back in time and relive every moment as though it was our last. Until we meet again in the above.

"Reflections From The Moving Wall"
I am a monument to a black period in this countries history. I am the Vietnam Wall, composed of two angled granite walls, inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand, one hundred thirty four American men and women who died in hell (that was Vietnam). Many people come to see me, strangely they come mostly in silence-old people, young people, children, mothers, fathers, widows and veterans. All fo reasons of their own. They bring gifts, pictures, letters, flowers, poems and cigaettes. The letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret. They ask forgiveness. They are an out pouring of pain. The people softly touch names on my face. They water my grass with tears, then they leave in silence and I hope in Peace, for I am more than two stone walls. I am a thank you from a nation that forgot. I am a long past dur apology. I am healing for wounds too long left untended. I am a tribute paid to fallen warriors. I AM THE VIETNAM WALL. "America has forgotten the wars. Will she remeber her warriors"? You may be gone, BUT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
