16 Jan A Missing Memorial
Nuns, soldiers, and sailors have them; scientists and orators have them; presidents have them. They mark historic moments and historic figures. They are the memorials and monuments of Washington, DC. There is even a marker monument designating the point from which all road distances were measured when it was dedicated more than three-quarters of a century ago.
But among all of these heroes, heroines, and heroic moments honored, one remains missing: a memorial to journalists. The Fallen Journalists Memorial Foundation would like to see those who sacrifice in the name of news honored by a memorial in our nation’s capital.
