I have posted many images from this location in Marseilles, IL: this is the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial. On a recent bicycle ride here I took more time at the memorial. I took many pictures and when I came home I noticed that I took a picture of one of the granite walls without realizing that my last name was on the wall: “Garcia.” I don’t know this brave hero, or the other fallen heroes etched on these silent, black stones, but I am so grateful for their bravery, service, valor and sacrifice.

Coincidences do happen, and sometimes for a reason. It would a twilight zone moment if it turned out to be a relative.
Presented for your approval. Carlos Garcia: an amateur photographer who, on a warm summer morning, picked up his camera, took a photo and crossed the Adobe Bridge into….the Twilight Zone.
