- There is the same feeling, while looking at places were people lay, after dying in a conflict.
Its difficult to mantain a non visible emotion.
This cementery looks well mantained, and with nice details in the stones marking each grave.
War is almost over in Europe, save for the criminal acts of terrorism and ethnic conflicts.
Much to do in others parts of the world.
