"We visited Mount Rushmore this summer with family from Italy, and all were impressed by the many races and nationalities present at the monument that day. Mount Rushmore is not only a national icon, but a beacon of hope for all people of this world who yearn to live free. Contributing to the Mount Rushmore Society is our family’s way of continuing the cause of freedom.”
