Just a memory by now
The caption to the photo (displayed elsewhere on the wall) said that this was an un-named soldier in 1945, carrying a young girl with polio.
The man has kindly eyes.
If the man was about twenty in 1945, he'd be about ninety now. Might be alive; probably not.
And the girl looks about eight. So she's about seventy-eight by now. If she's still alive -- I don't know enough about polio's effect on life expectancy.
Anyhow, these are the types of things I think about.
