From the Exhibit Journal
One of the real joys as I travel with the Memorial Exhibit is reading what participants have left behind in the Exhibit Journals. As people come and go during the day, I notice participants engaged in reading and writing in the journals. When I get a break I sit down and read. Each entry written in longhand is a treasure. Almost all are sincere and heartfelt.
“Tears for things horrible, unspeakable atrocities, many of which happened when I was just a child. How has such horror continued through my young adulthood, through my childbearing years, and now into my grandmothering years. My Lai after My Lai after My Lai. God help us all. Give us the wisdom and courage to put WAR in his eternal grave.” NOTE: Should we block out or blur her name?

Bill Nemitz, a well-respected commentator at the Portland Press Herald wrote this article in the Sunday morning edition. I think he captured the intention and the spirit of the Memorial Exhibit.
