Hidden Places of Honor
I was walking around on a hot summer night down in the heart of Chicago the other day. I was just wandering around without a lot to do. We sat and ate some Potbellies sandwiches by the river in this area of the RiverWalk (down the stairs by the river) by this lit up area. We were so focused on the major buildings surrounding us that we did not pay much attention to what the lights were actually highlighting.
It wasn't until we were about to leave that we really noticed what we ate our dinner in front of. It was the Chicago Vietnam War Veteran Memorial. It was in dedication to all the soldiers from Illinois who fought for our country in Vietnam. It is in dedication to those who fought, those who were lost, and those missing.
