Each and every American makes up the cogs that keep this great country running, and this is going to be a tribute to us all. I call the five-story, star-shaped building the Soul of America, because it will be used to preserve the written, audio, and video entries of millions of citizens who decide to contribute to its database, on the My American Life Journal. This will be housed securely in the bottom two floors of the building.
The Soul Of America monument will rise as a star emerging from the earth, with five floors above ground level and two subterranean floors. Given its placement in the park, it will be a jewel to behold, it will be the heart of Park of America. Situated on a hill, 35 feet higher than the rest of the park, she will provide shade for park-goers, beneath. Her 50, star-shaped, observation windows, on top, will gleam under the fireworks displays which explode above Flag Mountain. The U.S. flag on that mountain – the largest flag of all time – will fill the view of those who look out of the south side of the building. At night, she will shine so bright, you will see her from everywhere. And what a sight from the top of Flag Mountain.
One floor will have each of the five branches of the star dedicated to the representation of 10 states and some of the nation’s 14 territories. Each state’s area will contain historical, geographical, and tourist information regarding that state.
Various donors to the establishment of the Park of America will be recognized throughout the building. The southern point of the fourth floor will be dedicated to the 100 Founders Group, and available to them for private use as well as a large entertainment sky box, on the top of Flag Mountain.
There will be eateries and shops on the third levels, overlooking the park, where the wearied park goer can dine, overlooking the grandeur of the surroundings.
On the fifth level will be free classes and short plays about the forefathers. Players will reenact the journey to our independence. On play will elaborate on the formulation of the Bill of Rights. Someone will be able to learn how each part of the Constitution was constructed, through skits and scenes. Drinking deeply of the opportunities afforded here is sure to refresh and recharge your patriotism.
Altogether, this ten-sided structure will be an epicenter of education and promotion of the American way. It will be the Fountain of Youth of the American spirit. You will want to be a part of this experience.
Soul Of AmericaMy American Life Journal
This will be truly a cutting-edge concept for a monument. The Soul Of America will be a depository of which Americans make their mark in history by creating and uploading their own living life journal, called My American Life Journal. Finally, every American not only gets to go down in history but has control over how they are represented in this historical journal. No matter your age, you can backfill your story to the present and then add to it as you move forward through life. Imagine your great, great grandchildren being able to see you, and hear you as you pass on what you feel is important. Your wisdom, your favorite joke, your concept of what it is to be an American and your life lessons. Instead of just leaving pictures behind, for future generations, and your present family, you will be able to speak to them, and touch their hearts and inspire them. To you, this will be the most dynamic living family tree of which will be very valuable to everyone in your genealogy. Of course, they will be able to attach their branch to your tree.
Imagine family you may never get to know getting to know you! They can see if they have eyes like yours. You can share your wisdom and your humor. What would you like them to know about the times through which you lived? You can leave an enduring legacy which will educate and inspire long after you have gone, creating the world’s first living family tree.
You will have an opportunity to plant this digital tree or gift it to someone special to start their own branch, by claiming a space, in the My American Life Journal, for just $50 dollars. What kind of message will you leave? Or, what family member would you love to see an interview of, recorded to enjoy for generations to come?
The time has come for all Americans to have the opportunities to go down in history. To write and or create videos, representing who they are, how they want to be remembered, what made them laugh, what made then cry, what they feel makes a good person, what they feel America is about, to them, to leave an everlasting mark for their future generations to come. You now have an opportunity to leave your own life journal of your history, funny and serious, speaking to your family, children, great grandchildren, and yes even your friends. These pages you write and or videos you make will be securely stored in the Sole of America My American Life Journal archives, for all time. In 200 years your great-great-great grandchildren can read and or see these videos and get a good sense of who you were and what you were about instead of looking at an ancient picture which tells nothing. And better yet, you will be able to add to your history as you go through life.
Or what about leaving a special message to your children for when you are gone and they have one of those days where they just wished they could hear your voice. You can leave one of those life pep talks, where they can see your smiling face and hear that comforting tone in your voice while you remind them just how much you loved them. Can you imagine the impact you would still have on them and make their sadness go way?
