I am responding to the web site "Ecological Art Perspectives". I
went under the site called "Environmental Design," in which Maya Lin talks
about the Vietnam Memorial. The article caught my attention because it
raises the issue that after she won the contest, many people did not agree
with her ideas about the memorial. There were people who proposed changes
to the Memorial, but she disagreed. I feel that she did a good thing by
refusing their proposed changes because her ideas for the Memorial must
have been good enough to win in the first place anyways. Do you think she
should have compromised with them? How about its importance as a
teachable theme in elementary school? I think this can be important to
adress kids about because it teaches students to stick to their own ideas
and not let others change them if feel that they don't need to be
changed.
