Flowers for the dead



This statue, on Calle del Príncipe de Vergara, is dedicated to the victims of terrorism.  A memorial service was held here on March 11th in memory of the 5th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings.

It's hard to reconcile in my mind that five years have flown by since that day. It's a beautiful monument.

I know what you mean, Lesley.. time marches forever onwards without any regard for the traumas that tear at the fabric of our lives.
There is an official grand monument at Atocha Station dedicated to the victims of the 03/11 bombings. This year, there have been complaints that the Atocha monument isn't being maintained well and is looking a little rundown... it's a pity..
