What a beautiful memorial. It's too bad it isn't better known.
I remember thinking the same thing when the Vietnam Memorial wall first went up (before the statue was done). I had heard about it on the news, but had a really hard time finding it. There were no signs pointing the way and of the people I asked, most gave me a blank look like "what's that?" The ones who had heard of it had no idea where it was located. When I did finally find it there were only two other people there. Obviously that has changed over the years.
Hopefully this new memorial will begin to receive the recognition it deserves.
