The work of art I chose is the Abraham Lincoln memorial statue I visited a year ago on my vacation to Washington D.C., Maryland. The Lincoln memorial statue was started on February 12th, 1915 and was finished on May 30th 1922 at the west end of the National Mall in Washington. This statue was carved in dedication to our 16th president Abraham Lincoln for the accomplishment of ending slavery in America.

Firstly, it reminds me that I should recognize all of the courageous men and women who fought for our freedom and liberty. Without them, we wouldn’t be what we are today as a community.

Lincoln 's efforts has caused Americans to be seen as a whole instead of segregated, which has been passed down to my generation and I can see the efforts Lincoln made. Lincoln ended slavery nationwide in 1863.
“What does Memorial Day means to you?” A question probably not asked nearly as often as it should be. Memorial day is a time that is supposed to remind us of all the rights, liberties, and opportunities that are given to us due to our brave soldiers. They endure the most extreme hardships simply to defend us and our rights. Unfortunately, many of today’s youth only knows Memorial Day as a free day off of school and the day that the pool memberships start. To me, Memorial Day stands as a day of heartfelt, solemn remembrance of all the men and women who have given their lives in willing sacrifice to the country that they know and love.
What is a memorial or more important what, if any, is their importance? A memorial is something, mostly a structure, established to remind people of a person or event. I firmly believe that memorials are a great asset to our community, our city, our state, and our world. They help us understand of the lives before us and helps us appreciate the brave men and women who fought for our country. Today, I am going to talk about two famous monuments in the great state of Ohio.
“It was chartered by a unanimous act of Congress in 1980, and opened in 1933.” James Ingo Freed and partners designed the building (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum 2). People all over the world have made their own Holocaust Memorials to pay their respect to (Wikipedia.org). The word “Holocaust” itself comes from the Greek words “Holos”, meaning whole, and “Kaustos”, meaning burned (History.com). “It is 161 feet wide, 312 feet long, 91 feet tall, and is 265,000 square feet in size”. The museum cost was approximately 168 million dollars just to build (ushmm.org).
The Gilgal Rephaim, also known as The Circle of Og, is a structure in Israel composed of over 40,000 stones arranged in a circle the diameter of 490 feet (150m). Nicknamed the Israeli Stonhenge, the site is estimated to be 5,000 years old. Gilgal in Hebrew translates as “circle of stones”.

From time to time again war is declared and some wars are worse than others, but the thousands upon thousands of soldiers that fought in WWII is unforgettable. The Soldiers that fought in WWII have dedicated their lives for our country. Those thousands have died in war just for for the U.S citizens to live in freedom and liberty. After the events of WWII in April 29th 2004 the WWII Memorial was built. The World War 2 Monument is a memorial that symbolizes the will of the people to fight evil, the sacrifices they made and the improvement of our country.
Korean War Memorial The Korean War memorial is in D.C. and it symbolizes the Korean’s that fought for freedom and rights to gain. The people that are standing for the people who served and fought for the country. The Korean War weapons that they’re holding describe the types of artillery that were used in the war and just looking at theses statues remind me of why they are fighting and what was going on. P1 Washington D.C. is a huge place and has tons of Memorials that are amazing, and the Memorials stand for the people who have died and are still alive and that served in that war. One of the Memorials is the Korean War Memorial and you wonder “what the people and weapons they used and stand for?” I wonder what the pool of remembrance stands for because I’ve heard lots of stories about it.
