The Georgia Guidestones

On July 6, 2022 from news report: The Georgia Guidestones monument near Elberton was damaged by an explosive device, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said, and later knocked down "for safety reasons," leaving a pile of rubble in a picture that investigators published. Surveillance footage showed a sharp explosion blowing one panel to rubble just after 4 a.m. It was an amazing piece to see. Interesting thoughts on how to help society rebuild if needed. It truly saddens me to see someone do this.
