What The Flame Of Liberty Is Worth

If you've ever been to the Richard J. Daley Center plaza in downtown Chicago, you've probably walked past what appears to be a pigeon warming station and never given it a second thought. Of course, I mean the "Eternal Flame" dedicated to those brave souls who gave their lives in World War I, II, Korea and Vietnam. Most pass by, oblivious to the significance of the small, flickering light.

An "eternal" flame at Bullhead City's new veterans memorial park that only lasted until city officials received a $961 gas bill has been re-lit following complaints by veterans groups.
Even in the toughest of economic times, it makes sense to remember what the liberties we often take for granted are really worth. The price has already been paid.

Free And Proud
Not Wired
