And it's really is a shame.
The Powers That Be had the perfect opportunity to leave a Memorial - a monument (more or less) to a fading time. It could've been a gift to the good people of the Greater Wellington Hills Area (including all the Costco shoppers).
They could have left this for us as a token of their Honoring the Past with their promise for Better Tomorrows.
But why, you ask?
Because there's precedence, that's why.
The Greeks left us lots of ruins
The Japanese kept this one as a memorial and prayer
The Germans kept theirs as both art and a remembrance
And once upon a time, young Brits knew how to celebrate a concrete wasteland
ps: write someone ... a newspaper, the president, the Historic Preservation Commission, congress-people, a council-people, your attorney - anyone - and tell 'em, "SAVE OUR HISTORY!"
