Title: Peace begins as an eternal beacon, giving peace to the dead and the living, while realizing and providing sanctuary for all those lost.

  • Peace begins as an eternal beacon, giving peace
    to the dead and the living, while realizing and
    providing sanctuary for all those lost.

    deeds, strength, courage, and support by the Fire
    Fighters/Medics and Police/Port Authority.

  • Inspires and encourages hearts by reawakening the

  • In the center column there are rooms, one for
    each victim that perished so the family of the
    victim may decorate the room as they see fitting
    to sooth their pain and remember their loved
    ones personality.
  • The angle beams also contain rooms. One side is
    for the Fire Fighters and Medics the other is for
    the Police and Port Authority who gave their
    lives fighting for peace. Also symbolically they
    are the support necessary for peace structurally
    and socially.

  • A banner given by the UCLA Fire and Police
    departments read We support you and stand united
    as one The structure offers symbolism by two
    angle beams that support the structure,
  • (We support you) the beams stand, upholding a
    circle that unites one victims pillar in the
    center, thus We support you and stand united as
    one. The circular unity of its physical
    structure also symbolizes that heroic patrons,
    construction workers, artists and all kind
    helpers are necessary for the radiance of unity
    and peace. The angled beams are a leaning
    support for the structure and are representative
    of the strength and support given by the
    Firefighters/Ambulance medics on one side and
    Police/Port Authority on the other. For it is
    their strength, support, and even lives that were
    courageously given for the sake and stability of

We are all distinct, but equally important to the
unity of peace.

  • The lower section of the structure goes in to the
    ground giving peace to dead and the rest above
    ground giving peace to the living.
  • At the bottom of the structure there is a
    cleansing and reflecting pond, so that one may
    wash their hands of hatred, ignorance,
    intolerance and prejudice while reflecting on the
    past, present, and future of personal and social
    events, that the past may present a reflection to
    a peaceful future.

  • At the base of the sacred ground there is a stage
    in the shape of a hand encouraging us to help and
    guide people to peace. It also serves as a
    gathering area for public and community events.
  • The aspects of peace being joyous and solemn. At
    the ends of the peace structure, at the twin
    towers footprints are two parks. One is a
    remembrance park that people may go to and have a
    quiet and serene place for inner healing.
  • The other park is a more vibrant park where
    children and families can play and celebrate the
    joy of peace.

  • Peace inspires and openly communicates beyond
    borders of nation or religion to a receptive
    heart, inspiring us to use the desire of peace
    within us as a tool to aid ourselves in the
    necessary maintenance of keeping our hearts clean
    of the prejudice and hatred that attacks all
    humanity at some level.

  • Peace is colored in blue and green representing
    colors of the world and not to represent a gift
    that is only for America.
  • The peace symbol is also an internationally
    recognized character, as not to confuse the world
    of its deepest meaning.

  • The circumference of the peace symbol is 1776
    feet around, matching the height of the tower
    beside it named freedom tower. This way freedom
    and peace can live together in harmony circularly
    and linearly. The peace structure is
    distinguished by a balanced view with the statue
    of liberty, for we know the essence of liberty is
    the harmony of freedom and peace. These three,
    liberty, freedom, and peace, the blessing of
  • The symbol is also designed to give implied lines
    to the surrounding financial structures, creating
    a circle of unity, giving free economics
    inspiration for peace, and that peace be given to
    free economics. Peace is designed to promote
    balanced economic flow and inspire tourism.

  • May their footprints be the cornerstone for
    World Peace by remembering and honoring them with
    sorrow and laughter, that their tragedy may have
    purpose and meaning by bringing peace to all who
    are alive, as well as those who perished. For
    the sacred gift of respect is the blessing of
    peace, that those who pursue respect may attain
    this gift, and may this gift find those who rest
    in it. We who survive endure for peace, because
    we are a peace loving people. Recognizing peace
    by an internationally symbolic structure where
    the structure supports itself by each piece being
    necessary to support each other. It is a
    representation of unity and enduring for the sake
    of peace. May the lives remembered, the deeds
    recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal
    beacons, which reaffirm respect for life,
    strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and
    inspire an end to hatred, ignorance, and
  • This statement and the essence of it must be
    reflected upon. May it be visible on a
    reflection pond at the bottom of the symbol, that
    this structure can be a worldwide beacon for the
    freedom of peace, and the peace of freedom. A
    memorial to the respect of life, that this pond
    may serve as a way for one to free their spirit
    by publicly washing their hands and hearts of
    hatred, ignorance, and intolerance and seeing a
    reflection on the past, present, and future of
    ones self and our evolving events, realizing that
    our preservation of freedom is the unity of
    peace, and that the unity of peace is the
    strength of our freedom. To inspire peace and
    truth beyond boundaries at the core of humanity,
    the human heart.
