The Flagstaff Exchange Club rededicated the Freedom Shrine in the 700 wing today! The purpose of the Freedom Shrine is to encourage young people to gain a deeper understanding of the events that took place in the building of America. The Freedom Shrine documents illustrate how our forefathers showed strength and courage in changing the history of our Nation.
It was Patrick Henry who proclaimed, "Give me liberty or give me death." Not many of us know that this Statesman also said the "no free government, or the blessing of liberty, can be preserved to any people without a frequent recurrence of fundamental principles." It is this latter statement which is so appropriate to the dedication/rededication of the Freedom Shrine at FHS.
The Freedom Shrine contains the immortal words of people who carved out our precious American way of like...a way of life which we all too frequently take for granted today. It is important that we not forget the victories won and the lives lost for the creation of our constitution.
