Names,
printed, carved,
etched deeply into stone.
Shiny, black, reflective, introspective.
So many names ... so many faces mirrored back ... at us.
memorialized with flowers, teddy bears, flags, letters, salutes and ... tears.
So many regrets, so many wishes, so much anger - one question asked the most - why?

This is nice. It's amazing how the experience of being near something can evoke such strong energy.
