TRULY REMARKABLE STATUE .. . . did you know about this?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? OR WHERE THIS IS?
This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry division.
It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood , Texas
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was forced by Saddam
Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad
Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation of his country; he melted 3 of the heads of
the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American soldiers and their fallen
Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.
To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns
the loss of his comrade in arms.
Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news?
Because it is heart warming and praise worthy...
The media avoids it because it does not have the shock effect. But we can do something
We can pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave military who
are making a difference. Attached Image (viewed 39 times):
