In Amsterdam, special stones commemorate the victims of the Holocaust on the sidewalk outside the buildings in which they lived, showing their name, birthdate, and the date and location they were killed (vermoord). This one is across the street from my office- I get goosebumps each time I pass by.
In memory of the fallen. Each coin has a specific meaning behind them. Pennies mean someone visited the fallen. Nickels mean someone who was at boot camp with the fallen visited. Dimes mean someone who served with the fallen visited. And quarters mean someone who was there when the fallen fell.
My niece forgot she had a final to write during our communities annual powwow, rather than change, she drove over to school in her regalia and wrote her exam. She graduates high school next friday.
