Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children?
If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future? Americans care about their past, but for short term gain they ignore it and tear down everything that matters.
… this is the moment to take a stand, to reverse the tide, so that we won’t all end up in a uniform world of steel and glass boxes. ~Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
