  9. This is really cool! I think it looks sort of like a giant fingerprint.

  10. Now that is an impressive sign that would probably go down in the book of legends! And it would walways be current! Beautiful idea!

  11. That’s an amazing thing to know and I love that the sign is written where and how it is! Beautiful way to honor the diversity of this place that I’d love to visit now because of what this sign and your post tell me about it!

  12. So beautiful – thank you for sharing this story about the community and culture our city is building together! I would love to know where this is and see it in person too! 😀
