Although it is a bit strange, I think it would be an interesting place to visit. It must be quite a sight, to say the least! While the reason for it's existence may not be clear, it is probably unique.
Hill of Crosses
The Hill of Crosses, Kryzių Kalnas, located 12 kilometers north of the small industrial city of Siauliai (pronounced shoo-lay) is the Lithuanian national pilgrimage center. Standing upon a small hill are many hundreds of thousands of crosses that represent Christian devotion and a memorial to Lithuanian national identity. The origin of the first crosses is unknown, but despite repeated attempts by the occupying communists in the 20th century to destroy the hill and remove the crosses, they still come back in their thousands. While the subject is not scary in itself, the concept of a hill with mysterious crosses appearing is a little disturbing.
Guess we should never underestimate the power of people moved by their faith! Notice the difference here between placing a cross, and attacking and killing folks for some imagined insult! In my opinion, there is just way too much killing in the world. That, however, is merely the opinion of an old-timer who has seen far too much violence in his lifetime.
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. The rain seems to come and go, so we better not take a chance!
