Hope

The Holocaust Monument can seem like a very somber and depressing place, especially if you consider the last statue of the monument (see The End), but I don't believe it is. The main sculpture is brutally honest and realistic, but also one of hope and faith. That hand is not defeated; see the sinews, see the veins, see the strength with which it reaches to Heaven; see how the skeletal figures climb it, possibly with their very last ounce of life, for at the top lies salvation. Just as we were liberated from Egypt, we were liberated from this last enslavement, and so it shall be in the future.

I am off in celebration of Passover. A world of thanks to Nicola, from RheingauDP & WiesbadenDP, for having helped out with the daily pics during these days. Danke schön!

Hmm, too bad you chose not to let your identity be known.

I haven't been harping on the subject for 8 days just to be annoying or to promote an agenda. It was Passover this week, so I chose to go with a theme for the week, especially because I would be offline for a good amount of time (5 out of 8 days) and I wanted to make it easy. I'm sorry you got tired, but that's really your problem, not mine. You are very welcomed not to see this site, just as you are very welcomed to email me directly with any comments.

Now, I hope that you won't stop visiting, and that you understand why it was 8 pictures in a row on the same subject. Series will happen again in the future, I can tell you that much. In what I WILL agree with you is that enough of it in terms of the sadness inherent in the subject; it is now time to celebrate life.

Great series Daniel, I didn't know there was so many things like that in Miami. Just let "getting tired" be tired. One thing about blogs is that you can let it be open for discussion without letting it get controversial.

Thanks for the words, Michael. And don't worry, "getting tired's" little comment did not bother me at all.
