While a picture has the power to bring back the memory of one moment with extreme but static clarity, a name forces you to recall the entire person, not one moment, not just their experiences, or birthday, or wedding, not just what they looked like or what they wore, but a holistic memory of their very identity. This is part of the reason that the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was constructed with a long wall of a huge block of names: an overwhelming reminder of lives lost and lives lived.
