To you, it was just picking flowers. To them, it was a massacre. by: pleasefindthis, I Wrote This For You
If you didn’t see the boarded windows, the dirty floors, walls, and ceilings, it was just a camp house..just rows of camp houses.
If you only saw the beautiful trees and flowers and grass…. you could believe it was only someone’s garden.
If you didn’t see the barbed wire fences and the guard shacks and the destroyed crematoriums, you might be able to envision a time it could have been a lovely place to live.
If you didn’t have the memories or the knowledge of the left behind shoes, the combs, the luggage and the hair…the horror of the hair….
This is no garden …we should never forget…this is no garden.

A long, long, long vacation. Tons of fun from fairs to beaches and from city to city. Summertime fun with family and friends. Just a smattering of it all from New York to New Jersey. I hope you enjoy. I know I did!!
I always have fun in The City, but I especially and specifically have fun with the street art.

Kapadokya, Goreme, Turkey. – In the fight to choose their own religion, many escaping Christians chose to carve out shelters, houses and churches in the naturally formed canyon hills and unusual rock formations that were created by strong winds, flood waters and lava flows.
Throughout the region, these places were carved and shaped and turned into villages and religious sites.. Pretty amazing.
On top of the amazing places to hike and visit, many hotels in town have carved out rooms to sleep in and it’s all quite beautiful.
