Boston - The Holocaust Memorial

Truly one of the most inspiring memorials I have ever seen, this is def a must do during anyone's trip. Why? Because when walking through the memorial, you feel the sadness and oppression of when it happened. You read the quotes and it moves you.

What makes this memorial so special? The steam coming from vents below...that is what makes you stop and just think about what happened when approximately 6 million Jews were exterminated. And for what? All because one man believed his race was better than the rest.

So how does this relate to me as a Latino? Easy...oppression. There are people still out there who "dislike" the idea of someone being different and even coming to this country and supposedly "taking their job".
