The first social function of art is when artists create places for some human purpose. Some reasons are for memories, others are for just sitting around and talking. A big thing that all artists create this with is the intention for people to gather at them and bring people closer together. One example is Stonehenge, which they think was created for a community gathering for that community to perform rituals. People in my generation may not know what Stonehenge is, but most of us through family members or either visiting it will know of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

In the late 1940’s until the early 1990’s, there was a state of political and military tension after World War ll that caused a global conflict. It was known as the Cold War, fought between powers in the United States and their allies and powers in the Soviet Union; also known as Russia, and its allies. Along with this major history changing event, were many other events such as the Space Race, the Vietnam war, and the Korean War. The Korean War had become known as the “The Forgotten War” due to it being overshadowed by the more immediate memories of Vietnam, Desert Storm and the 15 anniversary commemorations of World War II.
The average lifespan in the United States is approximately 78 years. Isn’t it crazy that one singular event that may only last 10-15 minutes can radically change that life? Many people experience these events that cause a dramatic switch in the path of their life. I had one of these life changing events at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on a trip to Washington D.C. when I was in 6th grade.

The T-walls, bunkers, sandbags, concertina wire, guard towers, floodlights, gates, and tactical vehicle parking have faded into normalcy. I’ve learned to appreciate the rainbows of Conex containers punctuating the base’s primary colors of concrete, tan, and olive drab. Coalition forces have occupied worn Russian hangars and office buildings for more than a decade now. Some bear scars of past battles, bullet holes and shrapnel marks, and I’ve wondered if the halls impart their lessons to those inside. In one, a display of rusted Soviet weapons, unearthed from around the base, recalls a war museum… a war museum within a war.
In The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Maya Lin employs rhetorical devices in order to elucidate, the gross cost of the Vietnam Conflict in U.S. lives. The minimalist design used in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial emphasizes the overwhelming amount of human lives lost. On the Wall, a small diamond is depicted next to the names of people confirmed dead, if a person is MIA(Missing in Action) they get a small cross next to their name. The cross can easily be carved into a diamond if the person is confirmed dead ,or turned into a circle, a symbol of life, if they are found alive.
My chest rose and fell with every heavy breath and beat of my heart; the battle had rendered me exhausted and depleted. I looked down below at the enemy of the century, taking a short moment to gaze upon the man I had just ultimately defeated. The very man who killed his own father and threatened to destroy anything that stood in his way. Kylo Ren. There was a look of anguish on my face as I hesitated in my actions.
The beginning was difficult. There was so much blood and loss. Smoke filled the air, causing my throat to burn when I breathed in. I stood on debri that was once a home. Tears blurred my vision, a few escaped, running down my cheeks.
