A Letter to Dresden

Dear Matthias,

September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows is pleased to support the Interessengemeinschaft 13 Februar 1945 members’ request for the naming of a square or a street in the neighborhood of the the reconstructed Frauenkirche in Dresden as a symbol of reconciliation. We need such symbols if we are to encourage and inspire future generations to not only understand the true costs of violence and war but also, more importantly, to realize the possibilities of reaching beyond pain to peace.  Peaceful tomorrows begin with each of us in our daily lives choosing today to create a Culture of Peace.  A Guernica Square or street would offer the opportunity to honor that choice.

In hope, peace and gratitude for your efforts,
