How very very humbling :(
When I was taking the law degree the human rights course was truly moving and the lecturer arranged a visit to Auschwitz in Poland. I really wanted to go but in the end decided I didn't want to go with everyone else, it was something I had to do alone. I don't think I've yet really come to terms with the feeling of the place and the, I dont know how to phrase this really, echos of what had happened. If I didn't believe that a place could be imprinted with the history of what happened there, I do now.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 26694
I was there a couple of weeks after 9/11 and saw it, again an eery silence and people around trying to make sense of the senseless. What really got me was when I went up to the top of the empire state and looked out. The light shining up and so much that had been there every time I'd looked before just not there any more.I can't do Ground Zero either. :(
Thank you Johnie. That is a truly amazing story. We were suppose to go to DC/NY in Nov 2001. For obvious reasons and me leaving 3 children we didn't. But my main reason was to go to the holocaust museum. I so want to go because i need to get my head around why this happened. I am worried about the tears but i feel for whatever reason i need to pay my respects to all the innocent Jewish people who lost their lives.
