Week 35 – #17 Lost/Misplaced/Missing Piece

on March 26, 2017

You may not understand my reasoning, but since there are 3 options in the theme, I have selected the stark images of the oil seeping from the USS Arizona for this theme.  The image shows the USS Missouri in the distance.  From the sinking of the USS Arizona which brought the United States into the war to the ship where the document for the surrender was signed, thus ending World War II.  The lost and entombed souls (missing), and how the events of the time, led to the missing of the information to prevent the attack.

This is to remember the 1,177 souls lost that day on the Arizona, and the total of 2,403 in Pearl Harbor.

    The oil is a bittersweet reminder, beautiful colors, yet sad remembrance.

  4. A stark reminder of an awful tragedy. It is difficult to be there and not feel the loss.

  5. Provoking image. Thank you for sharing.
