    I was fortunate enough to see the Quilt on the DC Mall as part of a march on Washington.

    It remains one of the most moving experiences of my life.

    This would be a wonderful development.

    My late uncle has two panels (one submitted by friends on each coast! in the early 90’s) and I’ve never seen them…would love to.

    I flew out from Los Angeles with a friend back in October 1996 and for two-days we walked through the rows and rows and rows and rows of panels. Witnessed some scenes so emotional that we had to take constant breaks and sit on the sidelines to get composed. Mothers showing their children their father’s panel, partners looking down upon their significant other’s panel.

    I will be there again, and hopefully with many others, this time from NYC. It is a site to witness. It is an experience that you will never forget.

    Thank you for posting this. One of my regrets in life is never having been able to see the quilt in ’96. I most certainly wanted to, but I didn’t even have my first job, yet! Now that I’m 35 and not 18, as well as HIV+, this is an opportunity well worth actualizing.
