On the grounds of Sacramento’s Capitol Park lies a peace garden made up of numerous rose bushes representing a myriad of varieties. The garden is in the shape of a heart and has many plaques bearing poems about peace written by California youngsters. Just a few feet away is the state’s Vietnam memorial that bears statues of young soldiers in various stages of war. The most touching is the young man reading a letter from home– his youth, innocence, and sadness surrounded by the horrors of war serve as a reminder as to why we should always seek peace. The garden is a quiet place, and I found myself there this afternoon, little pink camera in tow.
