"Remember Me" Rose Gardens will stand as a living tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, dedicated to honor those whose lives were lost and all who honor freedom.
A "Remember Me" Rose Garden will be created on or near each of the three sites to honor the spirit of the men and women whose lives were lost in New York, at the Pentagon, and at a field in Shade Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. The gardens are meant to uplift and renew the spirit of our nation, and will provide a beautiful sanctuary where the families and friends of all who died in this tragedy, and all who honor freedom, can come to seek comfort and peace and release the pain felt for those who lost their lives that day.
There isn't an American who is unaffected by the events of September 11, 2001, or anyone who has not given, received, or grown roses at some time in their lives. Roses are the flower of love. Everyone who died in this tragedy left someone behind who loved them. The intent of "Remember Me" Rose Garden is to affirm love and life year after year with the blooming of each rose bush.
