Offbeat: "The Living Fence"

July 4, 2005--Posted at 11:30 a.m.   CDT

Trumann, AR--Never forget, that's the message Don Cole is sending with his "Living Fence." The fence is a reminder of those we've lost in the attacks on 911 and those lost while defending our freedom against terrorists.

Cole started his rock fence after the attacks on September 11, 2001, with each rock representing someone who died in the attacks. The fence goes around Don's home in Trumann and he's still building his fence, because now he's adding a stone for every soldier killed in the war on terror. So far there are more 4-thousand rocks in the wall, a wall Don hopes he'll be able to stop building soon.
