Eternal flame

Eternal Flame in Pool of Reflection

As we strolled along beside the bronze wall plates the names didn't move me.

"Look there's money in the pool", I yelled as I hung over the wall looking into the shallow water of the reflecting pool.

"Get down," said Mum

"Can I have a penny so I can make a wish?"

"Shhhh," said Mum, "Don't be noisy. People come here to remember all these people who died."

Reluctantly, I quietened down.
