Freedom Rock artist comes back to touch-up rock

(KWWL) -

The Freedom Rock artist Ray "Bubba" Sorensen traveled to Cedar Falls today after the Freedom Rock was vandalized before Memorial day.

He says he came to touch up the mural, after the parks department removed the graffiti.

Sorensen says fortunately, the vandals only painted over the words, which made for an easier clean-up.

"You know this is to honor veterans, and this is very heart-breaking that they would do something like that but paintings are easily fixed," said Sorensen. "I'm not too worried about it. You know, I think some kids probably made some bad choices, hopefully they're done with it, got it out of their system, and we can all move past it."

Sorenson says there are much more important things to worry about, like the 22 veterans who commit suicide every day.
