MONUMENTS and LANDMARKS

What do we think and feel when we see a famous monument? Or when we pass by a beautiful local landmark? For many, a monument or landmark is simply a thing of beauty to behold, with no further meaning to be understood. But for some, especially for those who have travelled far and beyond their means, these objects of beauty can be much more than that – a symbol of freedom, of achievement, or of inner peace.
