In Memory of SL's Vietnam Memorial, Which No Longer Exists
I was going to blog about Memorial Day-themed sites and events in Second Life, as I usually do every Memorial Day, but sad to say, all the ones I'm familiar with seem to be gone. Chief among is (or rather was) The Wall, a beautiful tribute to US service people who died fighting in the Vietnam War, which launched in 2007 and which I wrote about in 2008, and was still extant in 2011... but now, no longer seems to be. The sim is gone, as is the official website. But if Second Life land is tragically impermanent, as is usually the case, at least YouTube videos tend to last much longer.
This isn't to say there's no Memorial Day-themed sites or events in Second Life today, just that I'm not aware of any. If you know of some, please post details and links in Comments below. And happy Memorial Day all the same.
