Commemorative Outdoor Plaque

9.25.2007

Proposed Copy:

"
To the thousands fallen, millions pained, and untold heroes of Honolulu's Weeping Spring. May their souls find a peace and their bodies respite.

Hereby commemorated this sixth of May, 2028, by Mayor Gustav Hannemann and the other survivors of the 2027 HV-B2 epidemic.
"

UPDATE: Better, by Bendango:

"
Dedicated in honor of those innumerable souls who unwillingly perished, graciously wept, and courageously gave of themselves during The Weeping Spring of 2027.

Presented (Planted?) this sixth of May, 2028 by Mayor Gustav Hannemann and the remaining survivors of the HV-B2 epidemic.

A hui hou kakou.
"

(Which as we all know, means "Please cough into your sleeve.")

Possible executions (I'm scoping out the lot):

http://www.awards2you.com/ - cheap n' crappy

... basically, the good plaques (etched bronze) run $500+ and the lousy ones (engraved brass) run $100+ ...

Dedicated in honor of those innumerable souls who unwillingly perished, graciously endured, and courageously served during The Weeping Spring of 2027.

Presented this sixth of May, 2028 by Mayor Gustav Hannemann, the people of Honolulu, and the H10N5 survivors coalition.

"A hui hou kakou."

[some suggestions: changed wept to endured since we are calling it the 'Weeping Spring'--which is brilliant. The virus name is still TBD.]
