Three legged chair

I was shocked to see that the three-legged chair in front of the UN was swathed in scaffolding. I asked the guard.

"It is being renovated," he said.

I wish they were tearing it down. It was put up to memorialize all the people who have been hurt by land mines. Later cluster bombs were added. The goal would be to take it down when all countries have signed the two treaties,

Since 1997 only a few countries have not signed. Thus it means more people will lose limbs and life for this horrible, but profitable war product.
