The Shrine...ing | Indiana War Memorial's Google Virtual Tour

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”  -G.K. Chesterton

You Are Here Photography, Indiana's #1 Photography Team for Google Business View had the pleasure of shooting a Google Tour for one of Indiana's most beloved places, the Indiana War Memorial.

Established in 1919 as the National HQ's of the American Legion and to serve as a memorial to our Nation's Veterans, this place is  jam packed with history and it's free for everyone to enjoy.

I must admit, some of the injured mannequins decked out in soldier uniforms with bloody gauze wrapped around their head was a little creepy, but it was war after all.

I believe their intent was not to glorify battle, but to remind us of the sacrifices our past and future veterans have made and will make.

Thanks for reminding me, War Memorial and the next Mr./Ms. Veteran I see, I will hold out my hand for a shake and thank them for keeping my family safe.

So, if you're searching through Nuvo trying to find something "Cool" to do, go school yourself at the Indiana War Memorial.

Have fun, learn something new, and pay some respect without having to pay any dollars.

It's human to be Humane. Thank goodness for places like the Humane Society of Indianapolis for reminding us of that.

“Maybe this is kind of cliche, but animals, well, dogs, are what I do for a living. One reason I like spending time with them so much is they seem to think people are really good. They live with us, and obey our rules, most of which make no sense to them. And the main reason they do it is because they like us. When I watch them, sometimes I'm so blown away by how enthusiastic they are about everything we do that I have to go out and buy them something squeaky or chewy. Just because I love proving to them that it's not a mistake to see the world as a great benevolent place. I hope one day to react to something with as much pure ecstasy as I see in Chuck's face every time I throw the ball. Sometimes he looks so happy, it reminds me of the way blind people smile way too big because they can't see themselves. And if none of this links to anything in you, well... I think you don't know who I am.”
