Remembering and HOnoring

A Peacemaking Project by Hannah B.

What is the injustice we are solving?

We want to honor woman in the military as most events and statues honor the men only.

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of women not being honored for their military service
we will address this traditional stance that only men are honored
by creating a monument to be placed at Florida National Cemetery that will honor the contribution women have made in the military.

Our Project Plan:


  • To Recognize Women in The Military with a Statue at Florida National Cemetery

We will increase my / our compassion by...

Working with veterans and talking with them about their experiences in the military.

How will you show courage?

I do not like to speak in front of others. I know that I will have to find courage to advocate for my cause.

How will you collaborate with others?

I will work with Veterans groups, the Florida National Cemetery and Girl Scouts.

How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)

I will be raising the money I need to have my statue placed.

Key Steps

  • Advocate for my statue
  • Raise funds to make my project a reality.
