I received an email yesterday about tis monument.

It’s funny that I never seen this on the news.

I think it’s spectacular, so I thought I’d share this.

Thanks, Dick and Barb.

I think it is so sad how the news organizations manipulate their content.

Somehow I feel embarrased that I didn’t know this was there.

Grandpaw, I have traveled a lot in Europe and liked going to the towns and sections where the working classes are and in doing so I found that 99.9% of them were good people and wanted the world to be at peace and for all to prosper and raise their families. I have to make distinctions between the people and their governments. The Tear is a beauiful gift.
