Connecticut's 9-11 Living Memorial stands as a tribute to the individuals who lost their lives on September 11. Individuals who had lives filled with goals, hopes, and plans for the future. Connecticut's Memorial reflects these endeavors through a creatively designed landscape on the beautiful shores of Long Island Sound. The design incorporates the endurance of granite, the sheltering beauty of trees, and the tranquility of the sea. It offers visitors peace and strength to draw upon in their healing. The Memorial’s 9 foot polished granite stone monument reads, “The citizens of Connecticut dedicate this living memorial to the thousands of innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001 and to the families who loved them.” Reason site was selected. The Memorial will be located at Sherwood Island State Park. From "the point visitors to Sherwood Island State Park have a panaramic view of lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center one stood. From this “point” park staff and visitors watched the plumes of smoke rising from the towers. Sherwood Island State Park is open to the public year-round. In the aftermath of 9/11, the Park served as the staging area for Connecticut’s resources being directed to support the New York disaster recovery effort. Victims’ families requested a memorial where they could experience the healing effects of water. Finally, the Park is conveniently located in lower Fairfield County where most of the victims’ families reside. <BR><BR><b>Events planned for site. Governor Rowland dedicated the Memorial at a solemn one-year anniversary observance in honor of the victims of September 11. Connecticut law now calls for a “Day of Remembrance” on September 11. Annual memorial events are planned at the site. Tax deductible contributions in the form of a personal check in any amount may be made payable to “CT’s 9-11 Living Memorial Fund” at the Connecticut Forest and Park Association 16 Meriden Rd. Rockfall, CT 06481. Do you believe your memorial is a sacred place? According to Jim Sorensen and DeAnna Paugas of CT Helps, "Here beside the sea, visitors are close to the things that are eternal, the things of spirit, the unseen things. Even in this beautiful place it’s hard for many to visit. And yet, they come as individuals and as a community to seek and offer comfort and too remember those who have been loved and lost. The simple, graceful design of the site offers visitors a meeting place of beauty and solace, a place to remember and feel closer to the dead."
