On May 28, 1975 a student of Brampton Centennial Secondary School entered the school with two rifles. He loaded the guns in the boys washroom on the lower level and shot three people in the washroom, killing one, before shooting ten to seventeen (reports vary) people and killed a teacher before he killed himself.
If you have ideas or suggestions for a memorial and/or a plaque, you can e-mail them to BCSSmemorial@gmail.com
Dogs along with many other species of animals have been serving faithfully and honorably in the united states military. These animals have been used for many different purposes throughout our nations military history.
During the vietnam war, war dogs were considered "expendable equipment" by the US military, and after the war many dogs were euthanized or given to allied forces. As a result of this policy of dogs being "expendable equipment," all war dogs that served in the Vietnam War never came home.
It is time we design, construct and dedicate a national memorial on the national mall in Washington dc to these brave and faithful companions that have served their country honorably.
In 2010, Springbank School in Northland, New Zealand raised $3800 with an event to create an artwork for a local student who was murdered in 2008 (Liberty Templeman). The artwork was to be dedicated as a memorial for the young student. However the local community board has refused to let the artwork, (a beautiful oval glass art) to be placed in the local Public Library.
If no place is found in kerikeri for the memorial, then it will be sent either down to Auckland or to the UK Where Libby and her family came from.
We Students find this an unfair process as a lot of work was put in for this event and having the memorial sent away and is never seen by the local public because of a (So called) community board would be unfair.
This petition was designed to get the local community board to review and change its decision and keep the memorial in its right place. In Kerikeri.
Daniel Duke was shot and killed on 3rd November 2009. A memorial was erected in his memory in Ambergate Street where he fell. It was removed within days of being put up and we would like it reinstated, so we can pay our respects.
This petition will be sent to our local Member of Parliament. Thank you Family and Friends of Daniel (Mimer) Duke.
The late Sir Henry Cooper OBE KSG held the British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight titles several times throughout his career, and unsuccessfully challenged Ali for the world heavyweight championship in 1966. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Cooper]
He grew up on the Bellingham Estate in Lewisham, South London, and it would be a fitting tribute to mark the place with a permanent memorial of his contributions to sport, sportsmanship, British culture and anti-racism.
The leaders of the Returned and Services League (RSL) have described Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) war widows, whose husbands' were killed in the line of duty, and want their dead husbands' names inscribed on the Western Australian State War Memorial at Kings Park, Perth as an 'interest group' and refuse to honour our fallen.
A bureaucratic battle has ensued where the RSL may decide at their State Congress on 26 November 2011, whether to change the existing 80-year-old protocol that says only servicemen and women who were born or enlisted in WA can be added to the war memorial. The protocol also says that names can only be added to the memorial at the end of a conflict, a stipulation that puts in limbo Diggers who served in conflicts like Afghanistan and Iraq where hostilities have no clear end.
One of our brave war widows has said: 'The SAS, unlike most regiments, they stay here. When you join the SAS you stay in the SAS and the families stay here and they become part of the local community. We are a part of WA'.
Young Diggers and the SAS Association believe the RSL's decision is a 'cop out' and the widows now have to wait at least another eight months for the issue to be resolved, if at all, because the RSL may not agree to change their protocol.
This petition is for anyone who wants to show their support for nurses who have delivered care on fields of conflict, in service of their country. There is currently no dedicated memorial to the service of all nursing staff in the United Kingdom.
We are therefore calling on the Government of the United Kingdom to back the RCN’s campaign for a national monument, recognising the service of nursing staff in conflict zones.
From the work of Florence Nightingale on the Crimean battlefields to the modern day service in Afghanistan, nurses have served courageously in the heat of battle for generations.
More than 2,000 nurses gave their lives during the two world wars.
We believe it is now time for this unique service by nurses to be recognised.
The memorial to Bomber Command has been given the go ahead for The Green Park, alongside Picadilly near Hyde Park Corner. Opponents are not against the notion of a memorial just that it not be in The Green Park.
This is heritage, ancient parkland and should not be built upon and mature trees threatened, despite assurances that new trees will be planted. Other more suitable sites are available and have been offered and declined by the Bomber Command Association. The Prime Minister and donors agreed to the notion of the memorial but not necessarily being aware of its size, location and inevitable devastation to The Green Park.
The proposed memorial is 85 meters in length (see artist's impression). Long ramps and steps will extend well into the park and major relandscaping of the area will be required to build up the ground level to that of Picadilly. Veterans have expressed the opinion that other sites are more appropriate where those who gave up their lives in WW2 could be remembered much closer to their comrades from Fighter Command.
The Cook County Peace Officers Memorial has been in the planning stage for over nine years now without any progress.
We now need to apply pressure to those Cook County Commissioners and help educate the residents of cook county in seeing that the memorial becomes a reality.
We need to remember those 675 Peace Officers that gave their lives all while in the line of duty. This includes federal. state, county, area and city of Chicago officers.
A planning application for a very large memorial monument in The Green Park threatens this natural open space.
The Green Park, which is unique, and for centuries a natural parkland, is threatened by a proposal to build a huge memorial in it, bordering Piccadilly. It would stretch for 85m from Hyde Park Corner, with a building half way down. It would mean the loss of natural habitat, the grassland, the hedge and some mature trees. It would change forever the precious separation between surrounding developments and that sense of escape, peace and calm in the park. The proposal contravenes many Planning Policies on Open Space, design and within ‘an area of too many memorials’ etc.
The memorial, which has gained very substantial financial and other support, would be to the 55,573 members of Bomber Command who died in the defence of the Nation in WW2 and are remembered in the RAF church of St Clement Danes in the Strand, and on many memorials all over the country. It is not right that this emotive cause should result in the destruction of some of this precious parkland. A possible and a preferred location in Central London would be on the Embankment near the Battle of Britain and the National RAF memorials.
If you feel as we do, that all London's open spaces, their trees and wildlife habitats must be protected against development, and The Green Park in particular, please register your objection to this Planning Application by signing this Petition. We will submit it to The Bomber Command Association, asking them to withdraw it; To Mike Gray, South Area Planning Officer at Westminster City Council (Ref: 10/00926/FULL) and also to the Prime Minister, who will have the final decision.
The Council will be making their first decision early in April so please act soon. Thank you for your help.

Residents of Stretton who lost their lives at war are remembered by War Memorials in the form of a Roll of Honour in Stretton Church Lych Gate and a Memorial Window in the Church. Furthermore, a National Monument exists in the Arboretum at Alrewas, not too far away, yet Stretton Parish Council has agreed to spend more than £50,000 (fifty thousand pounds) of Stretton taxpayer’s money on a new War Memorial.
Stretton Parish Council intends to erect the War Memorial, opposite the Church, on the strip of land in front of Chilton Court known as the Millennium Garden.
The Children’s Monument that already exists on this strip of land is hardly 10 years old, but will probably be moved to the Village Green.
There has been no consultation with the people who live nearby to the monument site and the Council is unwilling to listen to the parishioners whose tax provides the money for projects within the village.
We deserve a say in how our money is spent, so if you don’t want your hard earned money to be used in this way, then please let your views known by signing the petition.
The pool at Leland Point has not been open regularly for the second year on time or consistently like it should be.
Kindle Smith was killed by a drunk driver on Feb 23, 2008. The following April a sign was placed at her crash site as part of The Memorial Sign Program by the Texas Department of Transportation at no cost to the tax payer. The sign simply states “Please Don’t Drink and Drive in Memory of Kindle Smith”.
These memorial signs are considered temporary by TXDOT and will be removed after one year. We believe these signs raise public awareness and remind motorist that driving under the influence can lead to fatal consequences.
Please help us change the law and make these signs permanent.
A shrine has been created at the gates to the site of a post-medieval burial ground in Redcross Way, Southwark. This outcasts’ graveyard was already regarded as ‘ancient’ in the 16th century, when it was known as ‘the Single Woman’s churchyard’ – a reference to the ‘Winchester Geese’, prostitutes licensed by the Bishop of Winchester to work in south London’s Liberty of the Clink.
By Victorian times it had become known as ‘Cross Bones’, the pauper’s burial ground. It was closed in 1853, described as being ‘completely overcharged with dead’.
In the early 1990s it was partly dug up during work on the Jubilee Line Extension. Museum of London archaeologists removed 148 skeletons, an estimated 1% of 15,000 burials.
The site has inspired many literary works, including 'The Southwark Mysteries', and festivals, including the annual 'Halloween of Cross Bones'. A vigil is held at the Memorial Gates on the 23rd of each month, where local people have created a shrine to honour 'the outcast dead'. Friends of Cross Bones are also campaigning for the establishment of a Memorial Garden and public park in the southernmost part of the site.
Cross Bones has enormous potential as a heritage site, the living embodiment of the extraordinary social history which attracts so many visitors to the area. The creation of a Memorial Garden would establish a pocket-park in an area in need of more green spaces. It would also be a shining beacon of social inclusion in an area which is currently undergoing massive changes and disruptions to the lives of some of its oldest inhabitants.
On the 23rd of April 1927, Fred Keenor climbed the famous Wembley steps to receive the FA Cup from the King. His team, Cardiff City, had become the first, and as yet the only, Welsh team to win the coveted trophy.
The victory was a momentous and much celebrated occasion in the history of Wales. That morning a Welsh newspaper had printed a picture of the Cardiff City captain knocking Lloyd George off a pedestal labelled `the most important man in Wales'.
The game made Keenor a Welsh national hero in a way that the rugby stars that preceded him had not been. South and north celebrated Cardiff City's achievement and Fred Keenor was at the centre of that triumph.

I think it should be supported for a present friendship between our Nations.
Don't destroy this Submarine. It is a Memorial to all Sailors of the World War two.
Save the Victoria Pool Society formed in 2003 pressured our elected and appointed NYS Officials to put $1.5 million of our taxpayer money into rehabilitating the Victoria Pool. This was completed in 2005 even though much more could be done if funding is found.
The Victoria Pool traditionally opened Memorial Day until its neglect of recent years. We wish to have the Victoria Pool open once again from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
Several large, shade-giving old trees are being cut along Besant Avenue in Besantnagar in the name of decongestion of traffic. So far two trees outside Olcott Memorial School have been cut and one more gulmohar and two tamarind trees have been targeted by the Chennai Corporation to be cut in the coming days.
These trees are more than 20 years old and have been providing shade and safety for lot of commuters on the road as well as for the chidren of Olcott Memorial School.
So for whose convenience are they being cut ?
1. Besantnagar residents are fully aware of the location of these trees along and on the road and the majority have been adjusting to their presence. The trees are well indicated by large signs along the avenue. The warning signage can be further improved
2. These trees are more than 20 years old and have been providing shade and safety for lot of commuters on the road as well as for the chidren of Olcott Memorial School.
3. . Rash driving is rampant, particularly on Elliots Beach, 5 th Avenue and Besant Avenue and particularly on weekends. These trees provide a good check to rash driving. If they are removed and the roads are widened, instances of rash driving will only increase, making it difficult for local residents .
4. The shade provided by these trees makes the whole road very cool thus making it a favourite spot for early morning walkers and joggers especially senior citizens .
5. These trees are home to many birds and insects and we would be robbing them of their habitat if the trees are cut.
Back in the 1950's public transporation transits were segregated leaving Blacks sitting in the rear of the bus.
Blacks had to pay at the front and walk off the bus to enter from the back, many times the bus driver will pull off before the Black person had a chance to enter the back of the bus.
This petition is regarding the support for a community memorial garden in South Pasadena.
The petition is written by Lisa Yee (thank you, Lisa!)

The members of the Jefferson City area YMCA have seen the facilities hours of operation be cut back the last two years.
We accepted the early closings between Memorial day and Labor day since the pool was open and staffed for use in the evening. The first cut was closing at 5:00 pm on the weekends from April 1st to October 31st. April, May, September, and October are times when the facility get a lot of late day use.
When the facility posted the head count spreadsheets, you could see the facility closed at a peak use time. These facility use tabulations are no longer posted. Starting this year the facilities are starting to close early on a week night.
We find this practice un-acceptable to the membership. The YMCA is a haven for youth to give them a place to go and play sports. It keeps children off the streets and gives them a positive recreational environment. This does not occur when the doors are locked.
A flagpole memorial should be allowed to be placed on city property. Private donations will be used to build the project.
We the undersigned are requesting that the city allow us to erect the memorial on the property.
Request that the Upper Nazareth Township Budget includes full support to the Nazareth Memorial Library.
Please join workers across the country in an effort to bring awareness to workplace injuries and occupational diseases.

The Gulf War(1990-1991) was the biggest military confrontation involving the United States since Vietnam.
The U.S. and other countries succesfully repelled the army of Iraq from Kueait, which it had invaded in August 1990.
Over 170 personel in the United States Armed Forces lost their lives in this conflict.
I would like to rename the West Side Highway in Manhatten, New York. Since the September 11 attacks New York City has not been the same. I think the new name should be the world trade center memorial highway or wtc memorial highway since the west side highway ran right past the twin towers.
It is our wish, as citizens of The United States of America, to ensure that the attack perpetrated on September 11th, 2001, will never be forgotten by anyone. We believe that the site in New York in which many bodies of those slain still rest, is now considered by us all as a sacred place, and that we should set up a memorial there for those who lost their lives, including the passengers on flight 93 and those who were killed at the Pentagon.
We believe that this memorial should be something seen from a distance by night or by day, something that no terrorist can destroy, so that all who see it will know that we shall overcome and that this horrible tragedy has not killed our spirits, but has made us stronger.
