Vietnam Memorial by Amanda

The eighth and seventh grade students recently went on a field trip to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial. While we were there we spent most of our time studying the design of the memorials. It is however impossible to leave there without gaining new knowledge about the Vietnam Era. The memorial was fun but it was also pretty depressing. Thinking about all the people who died in this war, the memorial is perfect to honor them. Everything had symbolism, it was tragically beautiful.
