    A solemn reminder to the world – forever standing. Today is a difficult prompt, and thankfully our last difficult one for the challenge. Thank you for sharing your perspective. Here is my Day 27.

      Phew–there have been a barrage of difficult ones lately. Glad to know there’s blue sky ahead, though it is always important to remember these tales of woe.

      There are a great many uplifting stories amidst the tragedy, though all stories involving Dachau are incredibly dark. It’s hard to even imagine such a place.

    Ghastly seems to be the perfect word.

    Yeah, well recalled! Ghastly is a good word to use, I was thinking on the lines of ghostly, but didn’t know how to present it.

    Your words fit the image perfectly. A difficult prompt to write about.
