Dachau, Concentration Camp

The overcast, misty weather set the tone for the day.  It was fitting.  You see, we were to spend the day visiting the site of a concentration camp in Dachau, Germany.  The rain sprinkled on and off and the sky was as gray as the stones beneath our feet.  There are no words to describe the emotions experienced as you walk there, except "overwhelmed".  We spent hours pacing through the site on this cold rainy day, pondering, observing, questioning, praying, and mourning, feeling chilled to the bone in more ways than one.  I learned so much there and would recommend that everyone go at least once.  My mind is full of stories, faces, questions, and so much more that I won't even try to convey what I experienced with words.  Pictures will have to do...
