At first it was hard to believe, I wasn't really comprehending everything completely. I watched all the news and read all that I could about this tragedy and then I realized . . . I know that word . . . Katyn . . . and then it hit me . . . I knew exactly what they are talking about. The statuary at the cemetary. I was at the cemetary just last fall, visiting my mother and brought my camera this time . . . I needed to take a picture of the new sculpture at the entrance of the cemetary . . . it was just so mesmerizing . . .
It's just really hard to describe the mood of the neighborhood and surrounding area here. On my block alone there are 8 - 10 Polish flags flying.
We happened to pass by the cemetary today and there is a sea of candles and flowers at the base of the Katyn Memorial sculpture. Cars were lined up all along the cemetary road and people were starting to gather again.
My prayers are with Poland at this time.
