The Googly-Eyed War Hero Who Unified A Nation

Recently a pair of googly eyes were placed on the face of a famous Georgian monument, and it has the world buzzing with laughter. However, it received major frowns from local police and city officials.

Yet, the conflict between city officials and the general public seems to be small in comparison to the movement the defaced monument has created. In fact, this act of defiance has somehow brought people together at a time where the country is divided.

An odd way to make an impact

The statue — which was defaced by an unknown person — was that of Nathanael Greene, a major general of the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War. He was considered to be one of George Washington’s most dependable officers and, as such, was honored with a statue in Savannah Georgia’s Johnson Square.

A true hero indeed. Now, we as a people, are in need of a hero that has the ability to bring together a nation of people that have been divided based on individual preferences, politics, and ideas.

It is truly a divided time within our nation and we are in need of something, or someone, who can bridge the gap. It seems like the googly eyed image has done a great job of bringing laughter to those who found it hard to smile about much of anything lately. Additionally, research has shown that a swell of interested youngsters have researched Nathanael Greene to learn more about him for their research projects. Interesting way to make an impact, but somehow it works.

Sad state of affairs when bubble eyes bring people together

It is most unfortunate that we live during an era where a pair of rolling bubble eyes are the one thing we need to help us get through a day. The shared image has generated thousands of comments that actually have people talking to one another again…rather than talking at one another.

Social media is buzzing with individuals who have found something that isn’t related to politics, race, or agenda’s being pushed by those who have financial motives. People have found solace in something that is free of personal suggestion, and instead, have become unified through the basic foundation of joy…joy in something that doesn’t warrant shame, pain, or ill-will.

Without a doubt, people can’t go around vandalizing government property. Running the risk of arrest or being fined for the sake of a few laughs is never wise. The act of placing googly eyes on a famous statue just happened to occur during a time that the American people are hoping for something to smile about. If bubble eyes on Nathanael Greene’s frozen face did the job, then so be it.

  1. The most likely scenario for the vandalism is that someone decided that a statue of a war hero in Savannah, Georgia must be a statue of a Civil War general. It was under this misguided assumption that this person, or persons, defaced the statue. Typical of the liberal mindset today that they do not know for what they are protesting, just blindly performing acts of violence and aggression.

  2. Should have had something to describe WHAT GREENE was famous for.
