Ironic

Although I feel I am overwhelmed by constant negative news, I was anticipating posting about information I discovered concerning this magnificent monument

Located in New Jersey and called "the teardrop" This was a gift from the Russian government in honor of those who died 9/11
I had never heard anything about it and was struck by it's beauty an symbolism.





This made the headlines on 6/24/10 .......... President Obama and the Russian president met and signed a treaty to put cold war tactics behind us.


Ironically, four days later...........June 28th the headlines read.....FBI arrests 10 people serving as secret agents of Russian's intelligence organization with the goal of penetrating US government policy making circles.

If it is not sensation news or negative news then it is put behind the mayo. I too had not heard or seen the Teardrop monument. Seems like some government even our own speak with forked tongues. Hope you have a wonderful 4th. Peace
