Driving By

Yesterday I went to El Paso' Holocaust Museum with Katherine. When I gave my name at the front desk the lady asked me how I had heard about their museum and my response was "I drive by it everyday." And that got me thinking (of course since I was in the place that displays, remembers and tells the story of great tragedy lose and violence) that many just went by the ghettos, the posters that proclaimed the Jews to be the cause of everything going wrong in their country, and then by the concentration camps. I think that is one of the hardest things to grasp, that violence against whole groups of people is still happening today and I just go about my daily routine.
