On June 11, 2014, a large crowd gathered at the corner of Massachusetts Ave. and New Jersey Ave. in Washington, DC to celebrate and commemorate the 20th anniversary of the beautiful monument in Washington, DC. When President George W. Bush dedicated the Victims of Communism Memorial, he said that "the 20th century will be remembered as the deadliest century in human history". "It is fitting", he said, "to remember those who perished at Communism's hands and enshrine their suffering and sacrifice. Most Americans are not aware that there have been more than 100 million victims of communism and there are still five Communist regimes, including China. It is the mission of the Victoms of Communism Memorial Foundation to educate this generation and future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism." The Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom is awarded each year by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation to those individuals and institutions that have demonstrated a life-long committment to freedom and democracy and opposition to communism and all other forms of tyranny. On June 11, 2014, this award was presented to Vice Rector at the Ukranian Catholic University in Lviv, Ukraine to Mr. Myroslav Marynovych. It was a beautiful day and tribute to the event with over 44 colorful, floral wreaths brought to decorate the monument from a large variety of donors.
