It is a beautiful garden, and it reminds us that love is a stronger emotion than hate. I'm sure that the Princetonians who lost their lives on 9-11-2001 would want us to enjoy it just as they would enjoy it if they could be here with us. Thank you.

I very much enjoyed reading about the 13 men and women honored at the memorial. Perhaps an all-weather device could show these brief remembrances at the memorial so that visitors would know more about to whom it is dedicated. I believe this would humanize the beautiful physical garden, especially since the remembrances are from people who knew and cared deeply for them.
