I took this in front of the county courthouse in Luverne, Minnesota. The overall memorial was very impressive, but this statue in particular inspired me. The detail, the feeling of emotion, that it evoked was humbling. Both before and after taking some shots I sat and just absorbed the feeling.
This is yet another example of finding things that you aren’t looking for. We went to Luverne to visit Blue Mounds State Park, and courthouses are always interesting, so we gave this a shot (no pun intended) on the way out of town.
I should add that I found the town of Luverne quite charming. Missy and I loved our visit, and have talked about going back sometime.
