Veteran’s MEMORIAL Park-A pictorial reminder- today

July 22, 2013 at 2:35 pm 5 comments

As I am without my personal computer for a few days – yes I have blown through another one! I am without my files so part three of the series “An Englishman Cometh” is on hold until I can access my information. However, this picture thanks to Lisa Miller of Busters House and Lorain 365 Blog says it all.

One has to wonder looking at this photo objectively why spacers were put in and the damage left? I will ask! The juxtaposition of City hall and the park in this photo speaks volumes. Readers will realize, I hope, as we go through the centuries the story, how this little park and the various inhabitants of city hall are intertwined. In fact how the city’s fortunes reflect upon this little green space-

Over the weekend the park once again hosted as community gathering – did they see what the camera sees and what did they think? Part three will continue as soon as the files are back in the meantime I present a picture of Veterans Memorial Park- ( REMEMBER???? as Public Square evolved into Veterans Memorial Park)

    People have become accustomed to ‘destruction’. They probably saw it and just let it be.

    Sprucing up this park would make a great eagle scout project! Do we have any troops left in Lorain?

    we have had some help from Eagle scouts before including Settlers’ Watch. the problem is as you will see from the rest of the series history keeps repeating itself and quite frankly I believe the Veterans’ Council NEEDS to step up to the plate and my reasons will be come clear in part 5

    I hope you energize the community of Lorain! This isn’t just about the “city” taking care of things. Our neighbors need to get involved, even if they don’t have ownership of the house they live in, they need to own the community they are in!

    you are absolutely correct but most around here are transient and couldn’t care less…. sorry to be such a downer but “history” says it all and I am right in the middle of it 🙂
