Liberty and Responsibility

In New York Harbor stands a lady – Lady Liberty – the Statue of Liberty. 

On the west coast – at a yet unknown
location, will stand the Statue of Responsibility.  How fitting it will be to have these two bookend monuments. 

For what is liberty without responsibility? 

Victor Frankl first promoted this idea of a Statue of Responsibility in his book Man’s Search for Meaning.  He was a
Holocaust survivor.  And a man I much admire and follow on Facebook is the creator of this Statue of Responsibility – Gary Lee Price. 

The picture says it clearly – one hand reaching down to lift another fellow human being. 

John Kennedy captured this so very well:


Can we have liberty without responsibility?
