To Memorialize Or Not That is the question

Some monuments are grand and glorious, but why are they built in the first place?
How do we decide who should be memorialized?
Do we choose warriors?
Inventors?
Politicians?
Those we have lost?
Those we never fully had?
What about a monument that we wish had never been made?
Is this worthy of memorializing?
Or this?
What message are we sending?
And what if someone changes that message?
