1. "May Peace Prevail on Earth" Marker
Inscription.
Spoken in the many languages of the University of Maryland,
this was our collective prayer on September 12, 2001
when thousands gathered with flowers on McKeldin Mall
to mourn the loss of innocent lives at the Pentagon,
the World Trade Center, and on a field in Pennsylvania
on September 11, 2001.

This garden marks the spot where those flowers were buried.
It is a place of community, hope, and remembrance.
It is lovingly planted to honor those students, faculty, staff,
alumni, parents, siblings, friends and other family members
lost on that fateful day.

 
Erected 2001 by University of Maryland.
