My wife and I visited the St.Louis Art Museum this week to view the show titled “Self taught Geniuses” and outside we noticed flags on Art Hill that represent “fallen heroes” that served in the US military and that died in recent fighting at various locations around the world.
After seeing the show at the museum we walked around the flag display.
To me, the sound of the dog tags striking the metal flag poles was like listing to music; perhaps sad music,but peaceful. Reading the names on the Dog Tags made me think of the loss for the families and our country. I think about the many millions, in the world,that have died in wars, during my lifetime, that don’t have flags flying for them.
