Group Description

The Crosses of Lafayette represent a public demonstration of the number of United States Soldiers who have died in Iraq since the beginning of the war. The crosses signify a memorial to those soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in the service of our country. The crosses are not intended to represent any religious affiliation. The authors of this project and website support exploring the causes of war, finding a way to swiftly end the present conflict, and prevent future wars from ever happening.

We realize that many people who see the crosses on the hillside directly north of the Lafayette California Bart/Metro Station will possibly feel the stirring of many different emotions. I can assure you that is our primary goal and intent.

Whether you support the war in Iraq or are against the war, it is clear that a majority of the citizens of the United States of America lack awareness of the devastating effects to the families that have lost love ones due to the war. It is our goal to create an available memorial where the grief that naturally comes when a loved one is lost in battle can be experienced.

Everyone is welcome to post a well thought out message on their feelings. Please don't send short messages like "that's great" "I am against it" "Who cares" Try to explain your feelings and make an interesting message for others to enjoy, ponder & be motivated! Messages will only be moderated for spam, abusive language, & personal attacks! If you know of articles about the Memorial that haven't been posted contact moderator with details. Bloggers are welcome to post their articles. You have to join this group to directly post messages, but if you wish you can just send them to moderator but expect delays in posting.

Make a copy of the latest Crosses of Lafayette Directory and e-mail it to all your friends and relatives. Recommended: set your membership to Special Notices. All members will be sent a copy of new Directories as they are updated.
