A Memorial

In Missouri, we stopped to eat our picnic lunch in the shade of the tourist center, and on the same sight was a monument to the Missouri firefighters. I guess this stature of the fireman praying was the second one made. While the first was on it's way to be delivered, 9/11 happened and they sent it to New York to be part of the memorial there. So, this monument was actually the second one made. I really liked the fireman's prayer. I had never read it before, but it was nice. I guess the heat was getting to me because I didn't know what the statue signified until I read the plaque.
