About the Peace Memorial
Photo Albums
The Peace Memorial is based on the philosophy that peace begins with thoughts of peace. In Rotary, we believe that peace belongs in the hearts and minds of each individual. By igniting the flame of goodwill and understanding through the promotion of peace, we can stimulate a shift in attitudes within both our local and global communities.
The members of the Rotary Club of Northern Guam originally designed the memorial for promoting this peace and understanding and to symbolize a Rotary Peace Island on Guam to join over 100 cities and islands around the world which have memorialized their dedication to peace.
After the terrorist attacks on our nation on September 11, 2001, Northern Guam Rotarians expanded the memorial to serve as a tribute to those who lost their lives. The design now incorporates the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the forests of Pennsylvania.
In 2003, the Peace Memorial broke ground at the Two Lover’s Point, Tumon. The highly frequented tourist site is centrally located to provide a convenient access to visit the memorial.
By the generosity of many supporters in Guam and Japan, the monument was completed in 2011.
