There it is something we must never forget and they are the Heroes.

And heroes are represented in history by statues or by memorials.

They can be for the heroes of an war.

The unveiling of the Colorado-made statue of Major Dick Winters was one of many events marking the 68th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied operation that paved the way for the end of the war. The 12ft-tall bronze statue in the Normandy village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont shows Major Winters, played by English actor Damien Lewis in the acclaimed miniseries, with his weapon at the ready.

A statue of Faraday stands in Savoy Place, London, outside the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Also in London, the Michael Faraday Memorial, designed by brutalist architect Rodney Gordon and completed in 1961, is at the Elephant & Castle gyratory system, near Faraday's birthplace at Newington Butts. Faraday School is located on Trinity Buoy Wharf where his workshop still stands above the Chain and Buoy Store, next to London's only lighthouse.[47] Faraday Gardens is a small park in Walworth, London, not far from his birthplace at Newington Butts. This park lies within the local council ward of Faraday in the London Borough of Southwark. Michael Faraday Primary school is situated on the Aylesbury Estate in Walworth.[48]

They Died to Make the Desert Bloom The United States of America will continue to remember that many who toiled here found their final rest while engaged in the building of this dam. The United States of America will continue to remember the services of all who labored to clothe with substance the plans of those who first visioned the building of this dam.

Depicts a waving American flag which changes into a [sculpted?] memorial flame. 30-feet high, with a piece of the original twin towers in its base. Designed by sculptor Eliezer Weishoff."

In 1972, the car was not up to standard. Ronnie only finished 9th overall in the championship. Outside of F1, he took second places in the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, 6 Hours of Watkins Glen, and BOAC 100km at Brands Hatch. He raced in 10 races in Formula 2, and took 2 victories. However, he couldn’t fight for the title, as he had scored points in F1 that year.

and for many many things.

Heroes to me are people who ignore the mainstream opinion about something, discards the current dogma, choose their own way completely, and end up accomplishing something groundbreaking that advances humanity in some massive way or sheds light on controversial subjects.

People like Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Julian Assange, Socrates, Galileo all fit into this category.

The most important thing is to discard the current dogmatic beliefs and "go against the stream", it seems, if you want to accomplish something truly groundbreaking.

A fallen soldier can never be a hero, he was only a tool for the rich, a fool deluded by propaganda and vested interests to fight someone elses war, paying with his own life. If all soldiers refused to go to war, there would be no wars at all. That is the only way the soldiers could become heroes. For ending the wars before they begun.

Yes NeoVain you are right about that but I was referring to statues of Heroes that in a way or the other died for something good to be remembered.

A fallen soldier must be remebered as a Hero because he died for his country to live in the future therefore each soldier that has lost his life in a battle should have a statue.

Yes wars must end before they begin.

Personally, thanks to the mainstream media, I think that the word "hero" is way overused, and by doing so, it cheapens the original meaning.

To me, most true heroes don't get statues. They are people who have stood up, usually alone, against intense and overwhelming opposition. They are people who saw a dreadful wrong and tried to right it, and typically are run over by the juggernaut they were fighting.

Often their names are lost in the dust of history, their graves forgotten and untended.

For every right we take for granted, for every bit of justice we still enjoy, there are probably hundreds of unsung heroes who fought, and often died, to give these to us.

I understand the meaning of your words FissionSurplus but still the statue of one Hero can represent a symbol for all the Heroes of the same war and not only to be remembered in time but to be remembered by Time.

It seems like many heroes die young, well not all of them, but just look at Bill Hicks and Eyedea. Bill Hicks at 32 and Eyedea at 28.

Apparently Eyedea wrote these lyrics when he was in Junior High. If that is all true, then my god, formulating conspiracies and these ideas when your 9-10?! Jesus. Well anyway, here's the song.



This song struck out for me, I could almost relate to every line of the lyrics.

Here's some of his newer stuff.




Easily one of the best artists I have heard in years, though, I just started listening to Mahler.

And Bill Hicks of course.




Could you imagine Bill Hicks comedy if he didn't die so young. Look how Carlin progressed for Christ Sakes! God damnit it's always the good ones that die young! Same with eyedea.

Well anyway.

Recognition for the animals

Does he count?

and in all seriousness, I think there should be a statue for every veteran
even a little statue could do good too.
just for the victim's family

You are perfectly right because without them we wouldn't exist.

This is the most important thing to be remembered because I guess that this is the only thing which would make them happy ...the fact that you care for them.

Heroic art is one of the most troublesome art forms. The Soviets came most close to perfecting it. Their near-baroque expression is actually really good.

The symbol of supreme sacrifice is meant to remember first those who made the sacrifice and second the object of sacrifice.
