West Springfield in Hampden County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
West Springfield 9/11 Memorial
5/29/70 – 9/11/01
To win the respect of intelligent
people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know that even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
