Of Memory and Our Democracy By Colin Powell, May 2, 2004“They can teach us much about the ideas that unite us in our diversity, the values that sustain us in times of trial, and the dream that inspires generation after generation of ordinary Americans to perform extraordinary acts of service. In short, our monuments and memorials tell us a great deal about America’s commitment to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all…Paying homage to the fallen holds a deeply personal meaning for me.”
