The sun warmed the earth and air the young people of Lorain High School Marching Band and the Lorain High JROTC, the representatives from the United States Marine Corps, The United States Army, Unites States Air force, the United States Navy warmed hearts. It was a morning of tribute to the young by the young as they stood proudly honoring the young men who gave their lives- the ultimate sacrifice.

The coverage for the dedication can be found in the following links . The area media also has to have our heart-felt thanks, their coverage of the project as it progressed reached out and their readers sent in donations. Without such generosity the project would have been “less”.

This is phase one of the walkway more to come.

In the meantime please view the videos of the morning taken by Mark Teleha of Lorain County Photographers Blog

    It was very peaceful – after everyone left I sat on one of the benches and looked out at the lake and blue skies and watched a sailboat come into the harbor- and thought of my own son……….

    Thank you to everyone who helped create this greenspace-a greenspace with such an important purpose. Many people whose homes are nearby commented how lovely it is-some even mentioned that they go over and will continue to do so to help pull weeds and remove litter. The dedication was very moving-from the ceremony itself to the beautiful, natural scenery off in the distance-the calm blue lake and skies above. Thanks so much, Renee

    That is an excellent shot by Mark.
