From 1st

They were built long long ago.They are old and they are broken(?).But they sure are a thing of beauty.What do they mean to us?What do you feel when you stand in front of such grandeur?

  • It does look good πŸ™‚

  • Looks interesting although I don’t get a sense of the scale, possibly because if there are people I can’t see them…

    The Lincoln Memorial may be the most moving monument I happen to have seen. It really somehow seems to give a sense of Abraham Lincoln’s almost physical presence. It’s a huge figure of him seated with quotations etched in the stone around him.

    Hard to believe George Bush has the same job this great human being did! If they do a monument to George it should be really really little imo. Maybe they could put little holes in his head and use him for a lawn sprinkler at the White House.

    I voted, old and strong. After so many years, we have to wonder how it even exists, while the apartment buildings and bridges built today collapses after few years.
