Long Description:
(At the top are images of two inscribed tablets. No idea what language is represented)

I am the Lord thy God

Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven images
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
Honor thy father and thy mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his cattle, nor anything that is thy neighbor's

Presented to
City of Rutland, Vermont
in memory of
Pres. John F. Kennedy
by Rutland Aerie 100
Fraternal Order of Eagles

This monument has been in place since shortly after the Kennedy assassination. I thought I should document it before the ACLU took issue with it being on public property.
