• Mormon temple in SLC Utah
  • 7th floor psychiatric unit at a hospital I stayed at when I was 15.
  • A cemetery at night.
  • The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, Pa.
  • 1. Yad Vashem in Jerusalem (the national holocaust museum) 2. a funeral I attended at night, also in Jerusalem.
  • When I was training for Hospice part of our training was to visit a funeral home where they did the embalming. I could have done without that and now I know more than I wanted to know.
  • Funerals, funeral home.
  • The Auschwitz concentration camp... you can almost see, smell, hear the suffering and countless lives pointlessly lost. You feel the pinnacle of real human evil.
  • part of a college criminology class. Definitely makes you think twice about committing a crime.
  • There was a museum, down south, I can't remember the name of it, but they just had all this incredibly bold history on racism...there was this one room that just kept repeating the N-word and other terrible phrases from the time period and it was so horrible.
  • used to be an abandoned mental health facility (Old State Hospital, abandoned after Reagan closed them alll) But, last September, I visited Hospital Muñiz in Buenos Aires. It is the "leading" infectious diseases hospital in Argentina, possibly in S. America. By US standards, it was incredibly awful. Here's an excerpt from an email I sent the day after our visit: Yesterday, after arriving at Buenos Aries, we were literally whisked away from the airport to visit Hospital Muniz where we expected a brief news conf with one reporter and singing for patients before going to hotel... This turned into a national TV event - with at least 4 different cameras - some live - and many printed press - chaos. We sang over and over... THEN the director of the hospital asked us to visit the wards - and we were taken to a children's ward first then an advanced disease ward with patient in end-stage AIDS and with active TB. I did not go in for obvious reasons [asthma]. We were given masks and advised to wash our hands after leaving. We were told on the way to the visit that H. Muniz is the most advanced care center in Argentina for treatment of HIV. I cannot tell you how awful this facility was. There was no soap [or hot water] in the restrooms. There wasn't an autoclave [or rubber gloves] in site... Between the chaos of the press, the personal grief and fears for the HIV/AIDS patients, the personal fear of active TB, and the conditions of the facility - we were completely physically and emotionally drained - to a man each of us (finally) arrived at our hotel and after check in verbally and spiritually vomited on our roommates... it has taken the better part of today today to recover. -----END EXCERPT----- You cannot appreciate how lucky we are in US...
  • If you could ever see my bathroom, you would see that the most disturbing place is a daily visit.
  • a funeral home in NASHVILLE TN , where the caskets were was so closed in
  • Alcatraz
  • The bank manager's office!
  • Auschwitz, Dachau, and Mauthausen concentration camps. All were brutal, but Auschwitz was the absolute worst. I got physically ill there. It was horrid and disturbing, but I do think that people should see at least one of them. If for no other reason than to remember, to learn, and God-willing, to motivate people to never let that happen again.
  • Some battery chicken sheds, airless, gloomy and covered in chicken poop with three day old chicks running around in it. Higher up on the list, though Ive never visited one, would be a modern day slaughterhouse kill room. It is said that some people can be permanently damaged emotionally by seeing a kill room in action.
  • Toss up between some places in Colombia and China. A lot of the same "features". No running water, no paved roads, no toilet facilities and people lived their whole lives in that one area/village. The smells were indescribable.
  • This little creepy park near my house where Ted Bundy killed some girls.
  • Middle School
