Tonight is the last night of the memorial flag display on Art Hill in Forest Park, St. Louis.

So David and I went down after dark for a final look.

If anything, it is more moving at night with the floodlit flags standing out in stark relief against the grassy background. Over the course of the week, some of the poles, each one named for a victim, had been decorated with flowers.

A relative, a friend or just someone who cared? No way of knowing, but it added poignancy to an already emotional scene.
