Where have all the Flowers Gone
Yesterday was the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the sinking of the ship the USS Arizona. Sometime around 1:30 in the afternoon, I happened to see a photo taken at the USS Arizona memorial and it was surrounded with flowers and wreaths. I decided that I should drive down there and snap a photo so I headed that way. I was surprised when I got there that there were no flowers or wreaths. I have no idea what happened to them. I can't imagine why they would be taken away but, apparently they were. So here is the memorial sans flowers.
I guess there was a memorial service sometime in the morning but all evidence of it had been taken away by the time I arrived.
Near the memorial was this plaque describing the ship.
