Nation's Symbol

[Artist's statement on the front of the statue:]

"The Bex Eagle"
Original Bronze
Lorenzo E. Ghiglieri
Freedom's Symbol

Free men must re-dedicate themselves to the cause of the freedom. They must understand with a new certainty of conviction that the new cause of freedom is the cause of the human individual. Human individuality is the basis of every value—spiritual, moral, intellectual, creative—in human life.

Freedom is the right to one's soul; the right of each person to approach God in his own way and by his own means it is a man's right to possess his mind and conscience for himself. to those who put their trust in freedom, the state can have no sovereignty over the mind or soul— must be the servant of man's reason, not the master.
