"War" Games

May 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Irony here. By the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil War Memorial are 1865 cannons and cannonballs. On the promontory and pathway sites, children play. Intrigued, the weapons appear to them as shapes and forms to investigate and scramble upon rather than as instruments of mass killing. With Memorial Day fast approaching, the innocence of their games stands as stark contrast to the loss of innocence of those who died in battle in this war and in the countless and ongoing others. 

"si lunga tratta 
di gente, ch'io non avrei mai creduto 
che morte tanta n'avesse disfatta" (Dante, Inferno)
