When it comes to mistakes, people often say, “Well, it’s not set in stone.”
COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (AP) – The designer of a Vietnam War memorial in northern Indiana says a misspelling on a bench seems to be getting too much attention.
The memorial was put in place Tuesday outside the Whitley County courthouse in Columbia City. The word “terrorism” was misspelled on a nearby bench.
The artist argues that it’s such a little thing and that people shouldn’t be paying this much attention to it.
“This is the important part: the guys that gave their lives,” Murphy said. “A mistake on a bench is a pretty small thing to worry about where there are so many other things you should concentrate on.”
And we owe them not only a debt of gratitude, but also the time and effort needed to spell their memorial properly.
