Little Odd Me

[this is good] speechless.


I have seen photos of this place from war time but I did not realize it was so close. The story of that French village is pretty overwhelming too. It's hard for me to fathom that kind of cruelty.


[this is good] Powerful.

[this is good] Great post. We went to Mammoth this past spring for the 1st time, and as we were driving up US395, I saw the towers and thought -- hey, what's that? I'd known its history, but I hadn't known exactly where it was. It's such a hard place to be. And to be American.

I mean I "get" fear, anger, and hysteria make people do crazy things... but usually those things are impulsive, not organized and process-ized.

I'm glad that Manzanar is there though. For all the gleaming monuments, we need to remember these things as well.

[this is good] You rock, Karen.

Excellent post. If it weren't for Vox closing its doors, I wouldn't have found you. I'll add you to my RSS reading list. Thank goodness for Vox Diaspora, too, which helped me find you.


You brought tears to my eyes.
Great post.
