Forsyth County Liberty Garden (Cumming)
Dedicated to: All those who lost their lives on 9/11
Type of Memorial: Community Garden, Park
Address: Central Park, 2300 Keith Bridge Rd.
Country: United States
Open to Public: Yes
Description: Purpose: In 2002, Keep America Beautiful asked that all affiliates across America create a Liberty Garden in memory and honor of all of those who were lost on September 11, 2001. Our Liberty Garden also serves to honor Forsyth County fire fighters, law enforcement officers, and public safety personnel that dedicate their service to our community.
Reason site was selected: Very public and in a large park.
Events planned for site: Annual Ceremony on Sept. 11th. Each year our annual September 11th Memorial Ceremony continues to grow. This year (2006) there was not a dry eye in the audience. Yet, somehow it seemed okay to cry it was sort of a respectful, humbling sadness that seemed to leave you with a sense of pride.
Do you believe your memorial is a sacred place?: Not sure just donít see it as sacred. Possibly because of the location.
