      It sure is. It is so good that it wouldn’t surprise me to hear that it is still being honored centuries from now. Though I’m not sure how good my hearing would be at that point! ;-D!

    That statue is great, it is in Philadephia: this is what I found on Google
    ” A 20 feet long, 8 feet high sculpture called Freedom, is currently located in front of the GSK World Headquarters in Philadelphia, PA. In 2000, sculptor Zenos Frudakis created it around our universal need to break free from a situation, be it an internal struggle or an adversarial circumstance.”
