Dry desert, wide open plains, rolling hills, and mountainous forest - enjoyed the beautiful scenery across the USA, but so glad to be at our final destination! #roadtrip #reallifesettlers #dontwantyoursheep
Always so sweet to spend time with good, old friends. They were among the first friends we made in Grenada, and how appropriate for us to see their faces again before embarking on this next, new adventure on the east coast. Thanks Vaceks and Cappas for refueling us with coffee and treats! :)
The Field of Empty Chairs, one chair for each life lost in the bombing. Brought to mind some lyrics from Les Mis:
There's a grief that can't be spoken
There's a pain goes on and on
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone
Here they talked of revolution
Here it was they lit the flame
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came.
Oklahoma City National Memorial - "We come here to remember Those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity." One of the most beautiful and contemplative memorial spaces I've visited.
