writings on the wall
This memorial was erected as a testament to the lives lost on November 8, 2013. On it were the names of fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, relatives, friends and neighbors.
Today it stands as a faceless and nameless wall. Have they been forgotten?
Heartbreaking… Wish you and all your friends and family in Tacloban the best Easter Sunday possible (or what remains of it) and may the springtime be a time of greater growth and healing for your community. Take care ~
thanks. I guess we’ve moved on, or at least most of us have, and it’s not even a choice.
They haven’t been forgotten by their families or friends, but, sad to say, the world moves on to the next news story. But their names must end up on the wall as a permanent reminder of that dreadful tragedy.
where is this please? and what was the original memorial about?
this is at the Tacloban Convention Center grounds (Astrodome) at Sagkahan. There used to be a printed tarpaulin with the names of those who lost their lives during the typhoon.
Ok, thank you. I have no knowledge of that, but I like your post
I pray they haven’t forgotten Orlando. It’s amazing how time causes outsiders to move on to other tragedies. The news was talking about the devastation in Thailand with it’s tsunami. That was 11 years ago already.
Now it’s Vanuatu on the headlines.. it would be a lot more difficult for them as they’re too isolated.
This is forever so sad . . . .
oh yes, they should get that final recognition!
