today I made a pilgrimage to the statue that represents the women who served in World War I and II… it is located close to many other war memorials down by the legislature…

it was very cold out and my fingers were frozen by the time I was finished taking photos…

it was heartwarming to see that someone had drawn a heart in the snow right beside the monument…

my mom was part of the organization that made sure this reminder of women’s place in the wars was visible

my final action before leaving was to remove my poppy and leave it at the foot of the monument…

a moving and emotional moment…
