eternal flame

I was reminded of the Eternal Flame at UC Santa Barbara.  Couldn't remember what it was about.

So I looked it up.  Turns out it's for world peace.  I guess it's been malfunctiony and some people want it fixed.

I remember how intrigued by the whole idea I was as a young person.  How could a flame be eternal?  It's on a part of campus I almost never went to.

To have world peace, we need to do a lot more than keep an eternal flame in Goleta, California burning.  But symbols can be powerful.  I like it.
