Memorial Day, Contra Costa County

I'm visiting my parents and don't have all my camera equipment at the moment. Here's a photo from The Crosses of Lafayette site. Lafayette is a smallish suburb in the San Francisco Bay Area consisting mainly of upper middle-class citizens who I believe have become increasingly more liberal in political thought over the years. From this quiet place, a war memorial sprang up on a hillside above the BART train station. It's grown as the death toll in Iraq has grown. Perhaps neighboring town, Orinda can start their own memorial for Afghanistan. And so on, and so on...
