Mural of Hope –On a large ‘sheet canvas’ visitors are encouraged to share emotions through drawing and words using colored markers.

Parrots for Peace
- Gloria Waslyn’s ‘peace parrots’ Baby & Merlin provided ‘support’ in the 9/11 clean-up. These colorful birds always win the hearts of all who meet them with their friendly antics.

 Sand Sculpting- Matt Long demonstrates his artistry and imagination, transforming a mound of sand into a magnificent form. Families and individuals are encouraged to build their own sand monuments.

Memorial Garden
- Around the periphery of the main sand sculpture, children and adults are supplied with small flags, and asked to ‘plant’ them along with offering silent prayers.

Seaside Tribute

Message Towers
-Similar in concept to the ‘Wailing Wall’, people are asked to leave notes to loved ones in a symbolic model.

Kite Train
-Created by veterans and children, this striking kite weaves an awesome path in the sky.

 Kite Arch-Spanning the shoreline, the arch is a memorial to all those touched by the tragedy of 9/11.

 The flying of kites represents the universal dream of freedom, and is a special way to recognize many of the unsung heroes and ordinary people who came together and did the extraordinary. As a way to share the event with those who could not attend, in the future we hope to display photographs of the event and mural art in a special Freedom Flight 9/11 Gallery Exhibition. 2008 will be our 6th year…the event has grown in size and scope.  Please join us, and tell your friends…sponsors and volunteers are welcome.
