It is human nature to take for granted the freedoms we enjoy. We are so caught up in our important day to day events and concerns that it is difficult to remember to be grateful for our many blessings. Unfortunately, if we don’t remember how precious and rare these blessings are, we will begin to lose them. It is vitally important, therefore, that we make an effort to create special reminders to keep such important things fresh on our minds. Such a reminder needs to be as effective as possible in getting our attention and communicating to our minds and hearts things that matter most in life. That is the purpose of this memorial.
