Has anyone seen this before? I didn't even know it existed. Why do you suppose the MSM doesn't want to glorify something like this that came from russia?

I have never heard of this monument, but it is a beautiful piece of art and a very moving gesture of condolence. Thanks for posting this, it brought tears to my eyes. I will visit the next time I visit my sister in New Jersey.

Nice find!

" Why do you suppose the MSM doesn't want to glorify something like this that came from russia? "

Uh, because it would expose the myth that Russians are our enemy.
( Albeit, our former enemy.)

Now we have a new enemy.......... the war on terrorism.
( The former war was on drugs.)

You know if you take that monument and flip it 90 degrees it looks like the "All Seeing Eye"

I doubt it has anything to do with the "All Seeing Eye". This is a beautiful structure and a beautiful gift. I'd never seen it.

That's an excellent symbol of solidarity from the Russians to you Americans, it makes me believe in the better nature of people.
Nice find.

Spotted this teardrop on beforeitsnews on a video, filmed Russian-style. I only visit b-i-n for a giggle, and seldom login to a-t-s at the moment cos there is a spate of trolling going on I don't want to be drawn into a fight against, but this monument just serves to remind us that Russians Love Their Children Too.

And maybe the monument serves as a reminder that in some cultures perhaps they don't love their children....very sad. Don't troll me on this, I did say 'perhaps',

In case the video is not easy to find, here is the link to it...

Actually, I think it was pretty well covered. I happened to have been working in the area at the time so I heard even more about it. It was 5 years ago.
