Photo of the Week – Reconciliation

This week's photo was taken in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral.

It is a statue called 'Reconciliation.' The city of Coventry was heavily bombed during World War II. The cathedral was destroyed.

The statue was erected in 1995, the 50th anniversary of the end of the war. It shows the act of forgiveness and reconciliaton. Since the end of the war Coventry has established realtionships with Dresden and Hiroshima. A copy the statue was sent to Hiroshima.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
