A monument definitely! Please consider legislation to those awarded the Medal of Honor, that we ALL owe them more than we could repay, hence those individuals/family of those recipients NEVER have to pay taxes during their life, whatever they do pay, they get back. We owe it to them. This should include Social Security and Medicare. These honorable people should be fully covered in all rights & benefits from the U.S. and the money involved is far less than a drop-in-the-bucket financially.

I type on 05 July 2015. The USA is a large and diverse country. But we do seek to be one nation. Admitting our stained past via a national monument can help our collective psyche heal. Thanks to the writer of this most eloquently worded request.

I'll sign but I don't like the image, it doesn't reflect what happen in this country. African-Americans are the victims of the worst crime ever created in America. if the creator of this monument is going to monumerialize other people and not even mention what happen to black people then it is a waste of time and a insult to African-American.

we need reminding of the African-American holocaust within our bordersto minimize eruptions of its recurrence.
