Teardrops for Heroes
The Moving Wall came to Elmira on a very dark, rainy August weekend. People came in bunches, very subdued. The Wall is a good place, a prayerful place, a sad place. The Viet Nam war made that place in many peoples' hearts.

It was a very rainy Sunday.
People were still at church or in bed. Or so I thought. I thought wrong; mostly in couples, the townfolk filtered through the downpours, not at all in a hurry. The rain was part of it.Thought the camera would be ruined. My clothes were soaked through, but I didn't notice until I wandered into a local store. A patron looked at me and laughed. Then I realized I must have been a sight.There would be a lot of rainsoaked Elmirans this afternoon. Many carried cameras, despite the rain.
