The tradition of Photo Friday is to feature photos from Washington, DC, this week I’m allowing a California photo. It’s from the Henry J. Kaiser Memorial Park, in the shadow of downtown Oakland. I discovered it on a virtual walking meeting, even though it was unveiled close to 4 years ago. Score another point for #activetransportation.

It was a great find, in this second week of #KPLantern , to be inspired by the words of our iconic founders:

“The concept of medical care as a right is an excellent principle that both the public and the medical world have now accepted”- Sidney R. Garfield, MD, 1906-1984, Founding Physician, Kaiser Permanente

The Remember Them: Champions for Humanity Monument stands proudly in the new Henry J. Kaiser Memorial Park, in downtown Oakland California. The completion and unveiling ceremony was held held May 31st, 2013 at 3 p.m.. This inspiring larger than life bronze sculpture depicts 25 culturally diverse role models who have made significant contributions toward global peace, freedom and human rights over the past 150 years.
