Just a little over 17 years ago,
in one of the coldest February's,
I was able to go to Washington D.C.
for my first and only time.
We went to many
different important sites around
in the few short days that we had.
On one of those cold, cold days,
we were able to see the Vietnam Wall.
Spanish Fork, Utah
has had a half-size replica
of that massive wall
for just a few short days.
I took Davis on Friday.
It's just as powerful
It's sobering and necessary
has a price.
On this day too
"We shall never forget".
"Now, we have inscribed a new memory
alongside those others.
It's a memory of tragedy and shock,
of loss and mourning.
But not only of loss and mourning.
It's also a memory of bravery
and the love that lays down it's life for a friend---
even a friend whose name it never knew."
