Hanging at The Wall in Second Life

I have been hanging around The Wall, the representation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Second Life, the past couple days and the reactions from people are far and wide. If one theme runs through them all, it is that it is definitely an experience that everyone should check out at least once, and especially, if you haven’t been to the real one. Visit it here.

People have been telling us how much it touched them and admitting to crying, feeling like they were there again, missing friends and loved ones, and watching people see how easy it is to find whoever they are looking for is a joy. This truly is an experience that everyone can appreciate and enjoy. Read some of the comments I collected below, and see the pictures I took in the original post about The Wall.

Doon: This is quite an experience
Doon: I just added to my Picks so others might know it’s here
Doon: The falling leaves and the reading of the names are a part of the whole feeling
Doon: Thanks so much. I’ll be inviting my friends now. I love Second Life because as in your beautiful work, the human and technological can interweave in surprising and moving ways.

AM Radio: incredible build here
AM Radio: the statues by Meleni Fairymeadow are compelling.
AM Radio: this is one of the best representations of a memorial I have seen in SL.

Hawc Decosta: Thank you very much, and we will be passing out the LM for The Wall at our event.
Hawc Decosta: Stone, at our Salute to the Troops we want to honor all soldiers from all wars, and hope to see many nations represented.
Hawc Decosta: I was very impressed, I’ve never had a chance to see The Wall in Washington, but I’ve seen documentaries on it and the spirit and essence has been captured, as well as a real picture.
