Hi everybody. My name is Bryce Proctor and my significant event from the past was when I went to the Arch for the first time. It was important to me because I got to see places I never been to before. I got to see the river. I never usually get to see the river from that point of view. But when I saw it then I thought it was bigger than I thought at first because I always saw it from the side. And I just really liked my experience when I went to the Arch.
I would tell people they should go to the Arch too because it’s pretty cool. They might like it too and it might become a family tradition. If somebody goes, they might want to take their kids, and their kids might want to take their kids, and their kids might want to take their kids, and their kids might want to take their kids, [laughter], and so on. So it could be more fun if more generations could have the experience to see it because a whole lot of people in St. Louis haven’t been to the Arch.
