Silver Spring in Montgomery County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
During the Summer and Fall in 2002...
During the Summer and Fall in 2002 the senseless violence of two men caused the deaths of thirteen innocent people. Although the tragedies occurred in several parts of the country sniper fire in the Washington, DC area abruptly ended the lives of ten men and women. The stones here engraved with the names of those ten bear witness to the fact that they lived and worked among us - and they are not forgotten. Their lives, each unique but all too short, are forever part of our collective story. This place also honors the kindness of so many who supported their families and whose active compassion still strengthens the bonds of community.
