Those who died in accidents on the city's roads were remembered at a moving ceremony held to open City Parks’ Garden of Healing in Braamfontein.

With a tree at its centre, the Garden is filled with shrubs and encased with two shades of pebblesIN memory of the thousands of people, young and old, who have lost their lives on the country's roads, City Parks created a Garden of Healing to mark the end of Transport Month 2012.

Unveiled by the City's portfolio head of transport, Rehana Moosajee, on 31 October at the Metro Centre in Braamfontein, the Garden of Healing is a symbol that the government and every resident should take serious stock of what is happening on the city's roads.

With a tree at its centre, the Garden is filled with shrubs and encased with two shades of pebbles. The commemoration of those who have died at the unveiling was an attempt to unite and send vibrations of peace, healing, love and compassion and join forces for safer roads in our country.

Each person at the commemoration was given a white pebble on which to write the names of those who had died, along with short messages. These pebbles were then placed under the tree in a moving ceremony of remembrance.
