When I read the headline, I had to click and read the article because I could not imagine that people would vandalize such a historic site and building. I was wrong. Two American girls, one twenty-one and the other twenty-five years of age, decided to add their own historical element to the Roman Colosseum by carving their initials into a wall. I guess getting the cheesy t-shirts that said "We were at the Roman Colosseum and all we got were these stinking shirts" was not a good enough reminder. Instead they wanted to leave a lasting impression of their presence for all future visitors to enjoy.
