A memorial to the fallen, Wahat Al Karama represents the grander sacrifices we’ve made, civilizations toppling as our values are fought for and lost over the centuries. Two slabs still stand, posing the question of whether we are on our last legs. Yet I can read it another way, as well - a memorial that is being lifted. We are in the midst of construction and reconstruction, creating order from the mess that we experience today. But that makes me wonder whether a necessary evil stands in the way, more conflict, more lives lost, more waiting for the peace.
