Commerative Garden 1916 Children

Saw the names of some children on what looked like slates on the ground. In how many graveyards do we see names inscribed on tombstones that are impossible to read. To put names on slates on the ground ensures that their names will be eroded in a few weeks. Did anyone not foresee this?

Names chiselled into stone slabs on the ground is ancient and won't wear down easily.

Sure Bobby Sands himself has it done that way.

Everyone just remembers his name because some people won't let us forget about the little whinger who never did an honest days work in his life.

That helps.

You must have plenty of time on your hands yourself going by the number of posts you have made in a month.

His strength terrifies you so much because you know you haven't a bit of it.

Which is it?! Your posts, as well as being spammy and non sequiturs, constantly contradict themselves.

It didn't look as if there was much chiselling going on. The names were in black. With people walking over them (they're in a park) in a few months their names will once again be out of sight and again forgotten.
