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.
2009 - Memorial to the victims of the 9-11 attacks, Emek ha'arazim / Cedars Valley, Arazim Forest, Ramot, Jerusalem (Israel).

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.
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.
People like Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Julian Assange, Socrates, Galileo all fit into this category.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes even a little statue would be something for a Heart from the Hearts.
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
