DETAILS: A DICK IN THE WALL: The new wall in the middle of nowhere, with a fake plaque on it, and a ‘wall of love’ featuring a couple’s faces.
A man dressed as a mannequin, with the words ‘love is love’ on the side, reads a poem in the window.
The words ‘Love is love and this is our home’.
The wall was designed by the National Park Service, with funds from the US Department of Homeland Security.
The ‘Dick in the Wall’ monument is on private property, and not under federal jurisdiction.
The US Department is funding the wall to be removed by December 30, 2017.
The ‘Love in the Walls’ monument was erected in the 1950s in the town of North Fork, Utah.
It was installed after a group of young women decided to walk around their hometown and see what the locals thought of them.
In 1951, the town council decided to install a ‘Wall of Love’, as the phrase has since been coined.
The wall has remained a popular monument, with more than 2,500 people visiting the monument in 2016 alone.
The town of St. George in Utah also erected a ‘Love Wall’ in 1949, although the monument has been in use for over a century.
It is a granite pedestal with a plaque on top.
The plaque reads, ‘To the parents of the women who are now walking the ‘Love’ Wall, I am sorry to say this monument is a waste of money and time.
We all know the truth, and it is the truth.’
The plaque also says: ‘I know that you know that we love our family, that we are loving and loving and love one another.
But there are times in life when we need to have some peace, a little peace, just a little bit of peace, so that we can be with one another and not have to deal with people.’
It’s a quote from a poem by Alice Waters, which was written on the plaque.
‘Love is Love and this Is our Home’: The ‘Wall in the Middle of the Country’ is on public land in St. John’s, Utah, a town of more than 11,000 people about 60 miles northwest of Salt Lake City.
In April 2017, a federal judge ruled that the monument could stay, ruling that the wall was not a national monument, as many had claimed.
DICK IN the WALL, by Alice Walser, was the inspiration for the 2017 ‘Wall’ monument, according to the National Parks Conservation Association.
A sign reading ‘Welcome to the Dicks in the Walls’ reads, in part: Welcome to the home of the American flag and the motto of the ‘Wall.’
In a 2014 book, ‘American Dream’, author and activist Anne Tyler wrote: ‘We are living in a time of tremendous opportunity.
The economy is booming, the middle class is expanding and many families are finding their place in the workforce.
We must not let this opportunity slip away, and we must continue to build the American Dream by building a wall along the southern border of the United States.’
Dick-in-the-Wall, on public lands, was added in 1947 by President Harry Truman, after he became the first US president to build a national park.
It has been used for more than 200 years, and the park is currently home to over 20,000 species of wildlife.
It is not yet clear what the future holds for the ‘wall’, which has been erected in a rural area in Utah.
