The three options I would do would be the Statue Liberty, Mount St. Helens, and World War II Memorial.
My first choice is the Statue of Liberty. I choice this one first because it has a lot of history, and such a meaning to it. It represents the freedom and drive, the determination, people showed, to have their rights. It might have token a long time for them to reach their goals, but the got them, and everyone now has the freedom of speech, (or not to speech) freedom to look for happiness, and freedom of press. I have never been to the Statue of Liberty, but of what I have heard it is a beautiful sight, and very important.
My second choice is Mount St. Helens. Mount St. Helens was an average place, with happy people, and then out of no where, it exploded. Leaving hundreds may be even thousands dead, and many injured. I want to no more about it, I know I could just look it up and find more information any time but, I would prefer doing it as an assignment, rather then just for “fun.” I realize not many people want to recall this tragedy, but it’s tragedies like this that we need to remember.
My third choice is the World War II Memorial. I want to figure out whose lives where lost, I might even find that people I know have been in the war and lived or passed on. I tend to get sad when ever I think of all the lives that were lost, fighting for our freedom, fighting for our rights. I hear the stories of people I know or have known of the wars, and the deaths, not quite understanding but listening, trying to.
