|tomb of the unknown soldiers|
theres an american cemetery from world war 2 in of all places, north africa.. tunisia to be specific.. seeing those grave markers on this day, in the new light of the arab spring, id like to believe that for the latter half of the 20th century and into the new millennium, a silent reminder of the last full measure of devotion and sacrifice made for a new birth of freedom has been there respectfully waiting for the people of tunisia.. im glad they finally found it...
the north african american cemetery and memorial in carthage, tunisia..
where ever americans and all peace loving people have spilt their blood for the freedom of the world, or a small corner of it anyway, i hope like tunisia, that the ground it seeds is the ground on which liberty and justice for all will someday prevail..
