Oh boy! I have been to a lot of Monuments which made it kind of hard to pick which monument I should choose for this post. What makes a monument? Not every statue is a monument, and all are not monuments that remember war. Monuments can be to remember someone like Martin Luther King Jr. like the new monument to him now standing tall in Washington D.C., or they can be something that is not man made like the Grand Canyon. I always thought that the Grand Canyon was a national park, but it is considered a monument. Did you know that the President can declare something a monument without approval of Congress? However, monuments may or may not receive money from the government to support it. I wish I had more free time. I had fun looking through all my old photos. Boy have I had a good life. Do you ever look through old photos and wish you could relive a moment? I guess I am digressing. As I have said, I have been to a lot of monuments, but the one that has made the biggest impact on me would be a statue located at the Dachau concentration camp. The sculpture was created by Yugoslavian concentration camp victim Nandor Glid and symbolizes the emaciated bodies of the prisoners who died of starvation and disease in the camp. When I saw this monument I cried. How was it possible that something like this occurred and the world just stood by and watched. I don't know if anyone will ever be able to answer this question, but I hope that someday we will stand up as a race and say no more.
