Veterans Memorial - Encinitas, CA, USA
"These memorial walls are meant to be reminiscent of ancient walls, the shapes referring to 'the waving flag.' Both ends of the large memorial wall are left unfinished, representing the unfinished lives of those who have perished in the line of duty. The large monolithic stone water feature within the memorial, trickles water slowly as tears, speaking back to those who mourn.
The ultimate goal in the design of this memorial wall is to offer a sense of quiet sympathy to the visitor, reminding those of us who take so much for granted, just how much others have given in protecting our freedoms."
"Dedicated to all those who served in the armed forces of our country. May we never forget their unselfish devotion to the cause of our freedom."
