Colorado XXIII

Colorado State University has not forgotten their students that went to 'Nam or those at the University that raised their voices against the war. I have written before about this being quite rare. Only one other memorial that I have found mentions the war resistance. No matter how one feels about that all these years later, it is important to remember what the era was like accurately.

This bridge over a small creek on the campus faces, by design, east and west and reminds us all, no matter which side we were on, to reach out and listen to others.


A plaque on each end of the bridge reminds us to hear out the other side.

This nearby wall as an odd mix of names, the lost, those against, and some undetermined and a few who seemed to switch sides over time..

The bridge and the wall may be found on the campus of Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

Next time, on the 21st, I will be making my 500th post. check back then as I hope to have something to say about that. As always, at 9:00am.
