    To the editor: Please note, that wall was made of concrete, not cement. It’s a common misnomer, at construction sites, what many call “cement” is concrete. Concraete is a mixture of aggregate (rock), sand, cement, water and some chemical ingredients. It is used to pour walls, pavemeents, garage and basemetn floors, building foundations, bridge abutments and piers. The large trucks you see around are not cement mixers, they are concrete mixers.
