100 People who deserve monuments

The project "100 People Who Deserve a Monument Better Than I Can Make, But Won’t Ever Have One Unless I Do It", begun in 2017, gives unheralded heroes and victims the recognition they deserve, and counteracts in a small way the pessimism and cynicism that poisons our society. Humanity is on a roll thanks to people like these.
