  1. What price indeed, Sue. You have captured the whole dilemma in this composition – the upfront edifice which though meant to be a memorial also conjures the panoply of state, and status quo, people in power who send valiant men to die, often on the basis of lies, and fabrications.

  2. These mass burrials after wars are so upsetting

  3. Powerful and poignant, so well done, Sue.

  4. I have been there, and to many others too. You capture the feel of it well, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Very moving Sue, these places have such a silence surrounding them.

  6. I couldn’t agree more!! So poignant and thought provoking!!

  7. Such a very moving sight always, Sue. One just asks, “Why?”

  8. I can’t beat Tish. She is the most perceptive one as usual. Perfect composition that tells a story.
