"A PLACE TO REMEMBER
A PLACE TO HEAL"

A few miles north of the town of Weed on Highway 97, on the north side of the highway, is a rather inconspicuous sign for the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden. I have driven past it numerous times and even turned into the parking lot once to see what it was all about. At that time I decided that it was not much and left without really exploring it. Each time that I passed it subsequently, I asked myself if I had made an error in not looking into it more fully. This time I rectified my earlier mistake and ended up spending most of a morning in the place. The ten sculptures in this beautiful natural garden pay homage to those of my father's generation that served in the Second World War and memorialize the fallen in the two wars that I participated in - Korea and Viet Nam. I found it to be an extraordinarily moving experience.
