The Peace Club at Friends Seminary high school in NYC formally dedicated a quadrant of Stuyvesant Square Park as a Garden of Forgiveness on October 25, 2008. Garden of Forgiveness Executive Director Lyndon Harris spoke, as did Claire Brennan, student leader of the Peace Club. Both spoke of the importance of forgiveness in peacemaking, and of the significance of the first Garden of Forgiveness in NYC coming from youth. It truly has been a joy for us to work with these amazing students.

This is the "heart" of the peace dove in the garden - white mums open up into the wings of a dove of peace:

Here are families planting bulbs in the garden just before the dedication:
