The Healing Field

The Killing Fields refer to 309 mass grave sites in Cambodia where at least 1,386,734 innocent people were killed and buried by the murderous communist Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979.
There is a Healing Field in Tempe, Arizona, in memory of all who died nine years ago on September 11, when America suffered its most traumatic domestic attack since Pearl Harbor, 1941.
On September 10, 2010, volunteers set up the Healing Field in Tempe Beach Park, planting 3,000 flags for those who were murdered that day, September 11, 2001.
New fellow Ruth Mower took these pictures as her small tribute to the volunteers who created the Healing Field that helps us remember and teach our children about 9/11. 
Fellowship of the Minds is grateful that Ruth is sharing these pics with us. You can see more of her pics HERE. Her blog is HERE.
Welcome to the Fellowship, Ruth!

  1. What an amazing tribute!!! I feel certain that future generations will not be told the whole truth about 9/11. It will be a watered-down, sugar-coated version.

     
  2. It is an amazing sight to see and experience. Taps is played periodically throughout the day. The yellow ribbons are for first responders, vets, and the crews of the flights. The teddy bears are for the children. Boots are placed at the foot of flags representing a vets. Each flag also has a card stating the name, age, location of a victim, and who they worked for. Most also included a tribute provided by family members or friends. Tempe Beach Park is in the flight path of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. It’s almost eerie to have those planes flying over head. I want to make the visit a tradition, to help me remember. It’s heartbreaking, and powerful. God has claimed those lost that day; may God bless those who survived.

     
  3. Very Patriotic and very Powerful! Beautiful sight.
