They did not make the mistake of thinking that the good is attained unwittingly and that hours have merely to be lived in order to arrive at the goals of living. To communicate with the goal, one has to address himself to it.--Abraham Heschel

The Vietnam Memorial Wall in D.C. contains the names of 58,272 Americans
who died in the war. Its message is that the tragedy of that wretched
war was that 58,000 Americans died. The wall is 146 feet long. Imagine a
wall that also contained the names of all the Vietnamese, Cambodians,
Laotians, and others who died. Such a wall would be over 4 miles long.
