Twitter Reverie – The sentinel

The ancient sentinel wall defended for hundreds of years. Yet it faded into obscurity just another piece of landscape. The ground began to quake the thunder of an enemy that was absorbed into the culture was released and came knocking. The wall came with it.

The image is a guard tower at the Manzanar Internment Camp in California. During World War Two, over 10,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned with no basis other than being ‘the enemy.” When they would eventually be released, it was into a world that no longer had a home, business, or property.
