Remembering The Ten
"People build monuments not because they do not know what else to do, but because there are wounds so deep that only monuments will serve to honor them."
-- Andrew Butterfield, The New Republic, 2003
The Santa Fe Ten Memorial is designed to focus on the celebration of life and memory of the Ten individuals lost and not the tragic event itself. Our vision is that the memorial can honor all Ten victims together so that no one person’s memory is excluded while we strive to respect each family’s wishes for the representation of their loved one. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received, and we hope that each family will contribute special information and mementos of their loved one as they feel most comfortable.
