"The Bravest of the Brave"

Four is a repeating theme of the sculpture, including the elements: Earth: represented by black granite, symbolizes a solid foundation and the blank slate on which we will inscribe our future. Water: giver and substance of life, the flow of time, and reflection of heaven. Fire: enduring symbol of liberty, rebirth, renewal, and hope, bringing light into darkness. Wind: life force movement, the uplifting of the spirit.
