United Nations Peace Plaza

On the corner of Lexington Avenue and Walnut Street in Independence, Missouri a Peace Plaza commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations and serving as the only memorial in the world to those persons serving in the Peacekeeping Forces of the United Nations has been developed.  In addition to the lovely bronze casting of a young woman releasing a dove, the flags of the USA, the United Nations and the State of Missouri are displayed.  The court yard of the plaza is paved with bricks that have been purchased by persons supporting the plaza and memorializing loved ones.  Bricks may be purchased for $100.  Each brick can take up to fourteen (14) letters on the face to inscribed the name of the donor, a message, or the name of a loved one.  While the installation of the features of the plaza are already very attractive, it is planned to complete the full design of the centerpiece by covering the "dome" of the base of the statue with glass beads in a manner that will represent the appearance of the earth from space, and to add a water fountain that will play over the dome and at the feet of the statue.  You will enjoy a visit to this lovely site which is located on the west side of the Community of Christ Temple complex and just a few blocks from the Harry S. Truman museum.  Your support to complete the project will be very much appreciated.
