"I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion. If silence is ever golden, it must be here, beside the graves of fifteen thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem, the music of which can never be sung." — #JamesAGarfield (1831-1881) Speech at Arlington Cemetery on Decoration Day (May 30, 1868) — Image: Twilight at the Vietnam Veterans #Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall...from a grateful nation.
Vietnam Veterans Memorial (USA). The opposite of DC’s white, gleaming marble, the black, low-lying Vietnam memorial cuts into the earth, just as the Vietnam War cut into the national psyche. The monument shows the names of the war’s 58,267 fatalities – listed in the order they died – along a dark, reflective wall.
