The location of this month's photo challenge is monument to our peacekeeping forces, called Reconciliation.
Congratulations, my friend.
Here are the clues, explained:
- Three On Watch—the monument, at the crossroads of Sussex Drive, St. Patrick Street, Murray Street, and Mackenzie Avenue, where the National Gallery, the American embassy, Major's Hill Park, and the Byward Market surround it, is a block structure upon which three peacekeepers stand or crouch, as though they are looking out onto their surroundings. Keeping watch, as it were.
- All we are saying...—is give peace a chance, as the song goes. As Lester B. Pearson said, in his 1956 speech about Canadian peacekeepers, "We need action not only to end the fighting but to make the peace."
- A place of Reconciliation—need I say more?
The next Where In Ottawa will be... ?
