Patriot Plaza Renovations bring importance of military to light

When we picture a true American hero, a mental picture of Captain America or Superman is painted. In the world we live in, it is obvious not all heroes wear capes. Heroes in the modern world are those who risk their lives for the sake of others. Those who care more about the soul of someone else rather than putting themselves first. When we picture someone who risks their lives for others, we picture a soldier. American Soldiers fight to protect our country from danger and live with the thought of death each and every day. At Columbus High School, the school takes great pride in honoring those who have served. Therefore Patriot Plaza was built. Patriot Plaza is a monument which Columbus built to honor those alumni who have gone to serve. The monument is truly a sight to see, and with it now being renovated it can only get better. Looking at the eagle with the American flag reminds us of the struggle soldiers in the past and present have gone through or go through to assure safety in the
country.

It can even inspire students many to serve and help others themselves. Faculty who have served are eligible to have their name in the plaza at Columbus. Doctor Burrus, counselor at Columbus High School had served in the United States Navy when he was young. He considers the time being in the Navy a key element in making him the man he is today. “We should all do service for our country in some way” Dr Burrus said as he described the importance of the monument and what it stands for. The monument also emphasizes the sense of brotherhood, which is prominent in Columbus. It shows that no matter what, students honor one another especially those who risk their lives for them. Patriot plaza is a monument that both touches the heart and entices the eye.
