So many things come flooding to my mind when I visit the town that was my home when I was in elementary school. There is a pretty good chance if you’re an American you’ve seen this statue before, probably way back in some history class. It’s the Minuteman statue that stands on the corner of the Lexington Common. See the huge “bowl” at the base of the statue filled with red flowers. When I was young the bowl was often just filled with rain water and one summer someone dumped a bunch of goldfish into the bowl. I don’t remember a lot of details but I do remember how it was the talk of the summer.
