_Message of the Artwork :: TRUE FREEDOM
Just as over a million American men and women have given their lives for our earthly freedom, there is One who gave his life for our eternal freedom -- Jesus. The True Freedom Memorial will serve as a visible reminder of these costly sacrifices made on our behalf.
Through the depiction of the American flag, a display of personalized dogtags, and a wall of written prayers from past presidents and today’s citizens, this artwork creatively recognizes the heroic sacrifices made for earthly freedom by the men and women of this country, and simultaneously communicates the important role prayer has played and will play in protecting our freedom and those who protect it.
_Written Prayers :: A Nationwide Invitation
Before the construction begins, there will be an open invitation to send in written prayers for our country and those who serve. These prayers will be applied to the blank canvases.
Upon its completion, the True Freedom Memorial will continue to house written prayers in a special compartment. Anyone who views this memorial is encouraged to contribute a written prayer for the troops or for our country, which will be permanently stored in a special compartment at the base of the wall of prayer.
At anytime before or after the artwork is completed, anyone will be able to contribute a written prayer via email, which will be placed within the Memorial.
Funding Model :: Individuals + Organizations
Purchase a piece of the artwork.
Personalized dogtags will be collectively displayed on one panel of the True Freedom Memorial. Anyone who purchases a dogtag will be able to honor a loved one who has served or is currently serving by adding a name to the tag. The tag will be a permanent part of the artwork.
Underwrite the Memorial.
An underwriter's contribution will cover the cost of materials for the True Freedom Memorial. Any monetary difference between the sponsorship and material donations will be gifted to a pre-selected organization that benefits veterans.
The True Freedom Memorial is a 5 ft. x 8 ft., 3-dimensional triangular sculpture made from wood, metal, plexiglass and paint. Wood suppliers, metal fabricators and home improvement stores that wish to help us honor veterans by donating materials are ideal contributors.
A Traveling Memorial with a Permanent Home
We are seeking churches or other partnering organizations who are interested in honoring military personnel and supporting them in prayer by displaying the True Freedom Memorial in their facility. While on display, we encourage all who look upon it to celebrate freedom by giving thanks for the sacrifices made on their behalf and also to engage in a season of prayer for our country and for our troops.
We are also seeking a place for the True Freedom Memorial to be installed and displayed permanently. An ideal home would be one of military significance where it can:
