James Brown Memorial in Augusta GA

At the site of the James Brown statue in Augusta, GA a memorial has broken out. Flowers, poems, records have been spread upon the base of the statue. Someone wrapped an American flag around his statue like a cape, and people are signing their names on it and leaving goodbye notes. James was always a man of the people, and a few days before he died he was handing out presents to poor kids in the CSRA. He cared about the people, and the people respond in kind.

  2. His legacy will last for generations…
