Wordless Wednesday - The Moving Wall





A visit to The Moving Wall, a half-size replica of the Washington, D.C. Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It has been traveling the country since 1984.


Before we went, we read Eve Bunting's picture book titled The Wall. In the book, a little boy and his father visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. and look for the name of the boy's grandfather on the wall.

That's a beautiful photo. I didn't know they had a children's book about the Wall!

Thanks for sharing!

The real wall is so powerful, it's nice to see they made a smaller version for people who can't make it to DC!

Wow. I didn't know they had a moving wall. We've been to the one in DC and it was very moving.
Beautiful pictures.

What great photos! I'll have to look into the book. We took our son to the Wall in DC, but it's a tough thing to explain.

Thank you for teaching your children such a meaningful part of our culture.
You are a wonderful mother.

I got to visit the one in DC and the day I went, it was raining and for some reason, that made it a more powerful statement for me.
