As our 44th president, Barack Obama, delivered his inaugural address, he gazed from the steps of the Capitol toward the Washington Memorial and beyond. His view of the crowd below him was framed by three impossibly large trees — a gingko, Caucasian elm and a bur oak. Past the Reflecting Pool, the naked branches of magnificent American elms framed the Mall symmetrically. The landscape of trees, architecture, water and humanity were not designed by accident. Although it is true that Washington D.C. celebrates our legacy and is devoted to monuments and museums, these symbols are only a part of our American story.

"There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew. " —Marshall McLuhan "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world.

To understand the magnitude of the Laguna Art Museum's display the last weekend of November, don't think of it as five fragments from a project that totals more than 48,000 pieces. Think of it, instead, as a few life stories that add up to hundreds of years among them. This fall, for the first time, the museum will display five blocks - 12-by-12-foot segments that contain up to eight panels stitched together - from the AIDS Memorial Quilt, a project that the NAMES Project Foundation launched in 1987 to raise awareness about the disease.

Barbara Diamond May 30 is officially Memorial Day, but generally it is observed on the last Monday in May. Not this year. The World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. will be dedicated on Saturday, and American Legion posts around the country have been asked to coordinate local ceremonies. Laguna's ceremony will be held Saturday at the Veterans Monument in Heisler Park, beginning at 10:30 a.m., with music provided by Larry Wohrman. Four World War II veterans will share their experiences in the deadly war in which 295,000 Americans died in defense of their country and freedom from tyranny around the world.
