Column: A forever moment

(I wrote this column, "Reflections from the long black wall," nearly 20 years ago, shortly after I visited the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. I believe what I had to say then remains true today. That is, one cannot visit it without being profoundly moved. With The Wall That Heals replica of the memorial coming to Camden this week, I hope everyone will take a moment to go pay your respects. Trust me; you will be moved in ways you cannot begin to imagine.)
