These two sidewalk plaques commemorate two parades that took place on Broadway -- the "Canyon of Heroes" at different times after the Korean War. I was walking up Broadway tonight on the way to dinner and came upon these markers. I couldn't capture the year -- my memory is 1953 -- but they seemed ideal to mark this moment in history.
My hope is in six days, six years, sixty years there will be no more mention of wars. But tonight this is the moment in history that we capture exactly sixty years ago today.
