Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness
Happy Fourth of July everyone! Remember the purpose of the day – when the US adopted the Declaration of Independence over 240 years ago, thus breaking away from the the crown of England. Be thankful for opportunity and pray for our country. Enjoy your parades, bbq’s, baseball games, apple pies, and don’t lose any limbs holding anything that can be set on fire.
The Fin Project at Magnuson Park, which once served as a Naval Base, uses 22 fins from decommissioned US Navy submarines built in the 60’s. The fins are arranged similarly to an Orca pod or school of salmon. It is one of the first Cold War memorials in the US. According to artist, John. T. Young, “This artwork represents the ultimate in recycling…’From Swords into Plowshares.'”
Even if you don’t like America, everyone loves Captain America.
