Words - Photo Hunt


 These words were found at the Pacific War Memorial in Corregidor Island.  Corregidor is an island in Manila Bay that served as a focal point of naval defenses during the World War II.  It is a significant historic and tourist site.  More about Corregidor here and here.




Inscribed on a bench at the Georgia Aquarium are these  words:

History is written by those who make the wake 
not by those who ride on it 
nor those who watch safely from the shore.

~ inspired by Billi and Bernie Marcus







Photo Hunt is hosted by TN Chick

Great quotations, and the third one is especially true to the Philippines if we look back at our history.

usually wisdom is left on monuments and tombs to pass it on.

hi, Lawstude! we didn't stay overnight in Corregidor. i'd love to go ghost-hunting there, i'm sure the ruins are creepy on a full moon.:P

or i may have seen a ghost there but didn't recognize it (hehe).
