The Peace Garden

Chemeketa Peace Garden

Day 61, 2012 On September 11, 2002 I was part of the group that dedicated this garden honoring the lives of the previous year’s tragedy.

After the snow yesterday, I walked around campus and nearly 10 years after completion, the Peace Garden is still an inviting place. The sun was just coming over the buildings and it was almost warm. Alan, my old boss now retired worked so hard to make this space happen. I hope he knows how much it is appreciated.

I am at the last one left in the office of the original crew. Everyone has either moved on or retired. Wow, so much has changed in 10 years.
