November 11th is always and hopefully will forever be a day to remember and never ever forget.
The people of Telluride who are nestled in the rugged and lovely San Juan Mountains, one of the most spectacular towns in the American West agree.
There is a “welcome home” project there of a three figure bronze work of a mother and father welcoming their beloved son home from the war. The sculptor of this amazing piece is Telluride`s own Richard Arnold who is a Vietnam vet and experienced firsthand war’s tragedies along with many and also the disappointment of not being welcomed when he came home. This sculpture is for every man and woman who has or is a part of military service. Dedicated to all who remember and to those forgotten. A most incredible tribute meant to be seen.
If you want to really capture the feeling of what the day stands for , you must visit this beautiful town.
Remembrance and celebrations begin in the morning of November 11th at the eleventh hour and there is a musical tribute to those veterans who were brave enough to fight for what they believed in.
So if you want to witness the joy, thankfulness and even the sadness amidst the wholesome beauty of God’s country, drop on down this November and experience an event that you will surely never forget.
