I also, at some later point, was asked to be a part of the show.
I brought down the house.
In case I haven't mentioned it before, I love history and in particular, I love the history of Oak Ridge. I am completely fascinated by the lives that these people led during the second World War. In one of the exhibits, I found myself tearing up when I saw the letters that people had gotten from the government, forcing them to surrender their farms. Their homes. It was heartbreaking.
(I'm really emotional today. I cried about The Simpsons earlier)
I had to take this picture. It's the Girl Scouts! Rock!
Also? I can't help it. I love Einstein.
I love the pictures of the women during the war. It amazes me what all these people went through. I have such respect for them.
I love all of the old photos, and I love this history. It's really amazing.
This is my absolute favorite photograph from that time. It was taken on Jackson Square in Oak Ridge. The joy on their faces is real. It is powerful.
It is called "War Ends".
I wish we could have a photograph like that, today.
And finally, because I can't end on such a serious note. Here's the photo Jason took in the men's restroom.
