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.

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.)
