  1. Memorial grounds truly live up to their name as they not only serve as a refuge for those who have come to pass, but they also serve as somewhat a time capsule. As they lay unchanged by the world as there is not much of a need to update their motif. Monuments that are placed in memorial grounds are something to scope out for, as they not only serve as a landmark, but serves as a snapshot in history.
