Type of Memorial: School Garden


Location: Garrison Elementary School

City: Garrison

State: New York

Purpose: Garrison lost one of its residents in the attack on the World Trade Center. The community of parents and residents decided to honor this life and others lost with a living memorial. The Garrison School is strongly supported by parents and the community. “Everyone is willing to “pitch in and help” making this a very special place,” according to school principal, Dr. Ellen Bergman. It was no surprise that so many rallied together to create a place at the school to reflect and remember the tragic events of 9/11.

Reason site was selected: The site selected for the memorial is on the public athletic field. However, the memorial has been designed to appear at the edge of the woods, quite a distance from high-traffic sporting events. The site was selected because it is a destination that when once reached intends to offer peace

Do you believe your memorial is a sacred place?: This whole place is sacred. The memorial is one piece of a larger part of our community. The Garrison School was founded in the late 19th Century. It is a historic place. The children make this place sacred.
