The sound of lots of young voices: “My hero is…”
A man wrote the name of the woman that hid his mother during the Holocaust.
Hometown Hero visitor: “This is what life is about. Honoring our heroes.”
A military man crawled up to the painting on his belly to write the name of his fallen comrade.
Army Spc. Eric Burri’s relative: “I wasn’t going to come to the Hometown Hero installation. But I couldn’t stay away. I haven’t cried since Eric’s death.” Lots of healing tears this morning.
