Lost, but Not Forgotten

The Old Man of the Mountain may have fallen, but New Hampshire will never forget the Old Man who's face once adorned this precipice. Much of NH's identity is tied up in the symbol that was once here.

It has been almost five years since the Old Man fell to dust, yet the Granite State has yet to replace this granite symbol with something else that can be readily identified and unified under. Perhaps the one thing that still ties NHites together is the state motto of "Live Free or Die", but still there is the void left in our hearts for the man who stood above us all.

Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils.
