I was interested to read this news article about how tattoos tell stories, especially among U.S. service men and women. Various libraries are promoting the online exhibit entitled “War Ink“. Veteran’s Day is a good day to talk about veterans and their service. I did not realize how tattoos could tell stories, especially in relation to war and peace.
Check it out for yourself, but one of the opening quotes from the exhibit by David Cascante is particularly poignant:
It’s my own memorial for those that do pay that price, willingly, because of their love for America.
Celebrating and remembering.
