It is said that a memorial, whether monument or statue is a promise from the present to the future -- our posterity -- about the past. The true value of that memorial is determined by how well we keep the promise. What John Hagins recently did here with our hometown Maria Kirby-Smith in honoring Joseph Kershaw and Catawba Chief Hagler is simply outstanding! Powerful personalities from our town and county's birth on whom the public can more easily ponder. John stepped up on the mound when no one else did and Maria hit a homerun with these two characters cut realistically ...
