You may be so used to seeing it every day, that you don't find the beauty in the Symbol.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Christiaan and his incredible fiance Sarah today. After our conversation today, I realized that Christiaan is, in fact, Mr. Symbol.

At least that's what I call him now.

He came in proudly sporting his Symbol shirt and Symbol tattoo and talked with me about how he found the Symbol in his french fries. If you haven't seen that photo, you must.

But what surprised me most about Mr. Symbol, was the way he looks at the Symbol. The pride he has for Rockford is contagious. He doesn't see the Symbol as a pile of scrap metal, or a weird reddish-orange statue. He sees it as so much more.

How do you see the Symbol?
