This is, possibly, my favorite memorial. It's outdoors and calm and beautiful. There are great quotes on the walls, water running throughout the entire thing and it's just a wonderful place to visit.

A couple of the great quotes, include "More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginning of all wars" and "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
