A Time to Remember...

This last Saturday, Mark, the Van Dams, and I did a tourist thing on the island. We went downtown to American Memorial Park, this park is fairly new, or at least the museum is... i believe it was built in 2006. But this museum is full of old mementos from WWII and the life of the people to who lived on Saipan. We were also able to watch a 20 minute moving explaining the beginning, while and then end of the war... It is very weird to look around the island now and wonder, okay, so what happened here where my apartment building stands... 
Part of an old plane. 
A photo of a photo. Families hid in caves from the Americans and were scared to death we were going to eat them... 
The end of the war...
Children in a camp... photo of a photo. 





Time of the War. So many lives were lost in such a short time.
