What does honoring someone look like? Honor can be shown through awards, extending respect and dignity through visibility, deference and sometimes even equal standing. It requires honesty and integrity. It is earned and certainly not automatic. A claim that something is intended to honor is not enough to confer the actual status of an honor. Intent is impossible to know since at least so far it is impossible to truly know what is in a person's mind or heart. Intent dose not equal impact. Good intentions will not remove bad outcomes or excuse ill-conceived actions, plans or undertakings. While it is impossible for anyone to fully know the outcomes from their actions some steps can be taken to maximize the possibilities for success and either the absence of these steps or the mismanagement of them can certainly easily lead to less than optimal and sometimes outright terrible outcomes. 

Here is an example, in Ireland,  of honoring done well. These are renderings and the construction of the project is underway.
