Towards Peace

Beverly Braxton, a New York educator, writes about the Circle of Peace memorial she created with her students after 9/11 here.

Braxton writes, “The Circle of Peace memorial is our tribute to all those whose lives ended on that tragic September morning, and our symbol of hope and remembrance for all of us who share in contemplating it, now and in the future.”

"The form of the wall is inspired by a symbol created by peacemaker Nichols Roerich in New York in 1929. Essentially, his symbol represents past, present and future enclosed in the circle of eternity, or science, art and religion held together in the ring of culture."
