Rather than embrace the old saying it is sweet and honorable to die for one's country, modern citizens need to understand the horrors of war. War is not something to romanticize but something to gravely reflect upon, and the WWII memorial will help people do just that. War should always be the last option and people need memorials to help them remember that.
World War II was one of the most important events in the lives of so many people. The memorial should be opened so that all the people who lost loved ones can go to honor the fallen. It should be open as it is a part of history that shaped the world as we know it.
