The Garden of Peace is a visual memorial created to commemorate victims of homicide. Each year victims of violence from Boston and surrounding areas are recognized in a celebration at the Garden of Peace located adjacent to the Plaza of 1 Cambridge Street (on Somerset Street), Boston, MA. Unfortunately the murder rate continues to rise and families are continuing to mourn the death of their children and loved ones. Families of murder victims in Boston can request a stone to be dedicated in honor of their loved one.
This Thursday new stones will added to the Garden. Justin already has a stone there and each year I try to return to recognize him and other families who are suffering. I am hoping to have a similar Peace Garden created in Cambridge in the near future as the murder rate continues to rise all over the State and Country.
This year, I am honored to be able to give a tribute to my son Justin by sharing my story. I would love to see each of you if you can make it.
