This photo is stunning, I've never seen anything like it!

I wanted to stop by and say congrats on your nomination to the Top 40 - Best of Luck!

Thanks for visiting, Cindy. The Hill represents faith and defiance in times of oppression.

When I was in Lithuania two years ago, I wanted to visit the Hill bus, alas, it was not to be.

Your description of the Hill - "faith and defiance in times of oppression" pretty much sums up the stories I've heard told about it!

Sorry you missed it Steve. Very symbolic, of course (some recent Pope visited it not too long ago). In the Lithuanian cemetery in Toronto (actually next-door Mississauga) they have a smaller version as a memorial.
