The Four Freedoms

In light of this past Monday’s Memorial Day, I thought it would be appropriate to post murals of  Norman Rockwell’s famous iconic paintings, The Four Freedoms. These images represent the American values that he felt embodied enduring freedoms of:  Freedom of Worship, Freedom of Speech, Freedom From Want, and Freedom From Fear.

The town of Silverton, OR commissioned local artist David McDonald to reproduce the famous paintings as murals in 1993, to mark the fiftieth anniversary in which they were originally painted. We can still look at them today to say although times have changed the importance of the freedoms that they represent have not. We can thank those who have served in our military to fight for America and to ensure and protect our freedoms. Although Memorial Day in only one day to give thanks we can give tribute daily in the lives we live by safeguarding and not taking for granted these freedoms we hold so dear.

My unofficial tribute to Boston. A little humor can go a long way to help ease some pain the people there have been experiencing but I hope these few murals will pay respect with their high impact visuals.
