The Wall

Hands touching the Vietnam Vterans Memorial Wall create a moving reflection. However, this is not the wall on the Mall in Washington, DC, but one of five scale-model replicas of the Wall that travel around the country, bringing the experience of the memorial to those who haven’t made the pilgrimage to Washington. Doug Thompson visited the wall during a stop in Southern Illinois and captured this image. A photo essay and video about this traveling wall will appear soon in Capitol Hill Blue.
