On Peace and Reconciliation on the Tacoma Waterfront: A mid-summer's date night dream

Wednesday is date night. The Tacoma waterfront is beautiful in the summer. We took in the new Reconciliation Park with its authentic chinese pagoda during our amble along Ruston Way. Something terrible happened in Tacoma in 1885. The park is a noble and beautiful attempt to rectify it. Our evening ended with Daisy Queen. -gw
The ages of its infancy and childhood are past, never again to return, while the Great Age, the consummation of all ages, which must signalize the coming of age of the entire human race, is yet to come.
