A travel to Fort Point is a travel towards what is valuable. It reminds the importance of simplicity, unity, hard work, genuine sacrifice for Country and love for Fellow Men and Women.
Fort Point, its doorway takes us back to what was golden. A time where dreams were plenty and catching them were easy.
89 years ago, Golden Gate Bridge was built just above Fort Point. How Fort Point survived without a scratch is a wonder in itself. The suspension bridge made of heavy steel took 4 years to finish.
Climbing the stairs. Solid and strong every brick and stone, Fort Point has withstood the Civil War, earthquakes, fires, Bridge construction, World War II, and preservation as a National Historic Site.
It survived more than 150 years. Will it survive another 150 years more? For sure it will outlived many of its Residents and Visitors.
Its windows allows us to see the two versions of the future based on the choices we are making now. First version, the good which is full of light, kindness and joy. The Planet is thriving. Nature is flourishing. Children are able to discover and experience what they read in books.
Second version, the bad filled with war, greed, Earth destruction and diseases. A version where People are miserable, sick, suffering, fighting, desperate, dying. Children can no longer see and experience Nature and the Planet the way their Parents have enjoyed them.
The rooftop awakens with its 360 degrees of spectacular view of the most beautiful City by the Bay.
The Golden Gate Bridge seems just an arm stretch away. So close yet unreachable.
Its hallways echoes change that needs to be fought everyday. Its walls screaming not to repeat the mistakes and evils of History.
“We can leave a legacy of good or be the reason goodness is dead.”
The Lighthouse beckons after Sunset guiding the lost, the tired, the lonely and the broken to find their way home.
Built at the height of the California Gold Rush, Fort Point has been called “The Pride of the Pacific” and “The Gibraltar of the West Coast.”
Fort of Heroes. Fort Point in 1970 became a National Historical Site, not only to preserve one of the most perfect models of masonry in America but to remind Americans that till this day, brave Men and Women continues to fight and sacrifice for Freedom and Democracy so everyone gets to sleep safely at night and be able to enjoy fully their American Dreams by day.
