We ended up at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a very somber end to the day, and spent a long time there, especially at the center where the two wings meet, the dates 1959 and 1975 resounding. The remembrances and tokens left at the base of the wall included a Superman comic book from 1965 with a note that read, "Is this the one you wanted?" Pictures, poems, stories, letters. A single flower. But the one that really got to me was the box of Bandaids, the kind that are for blistered feet.
