Honour the peacemaker

The negative image abroad of Alexandra Park in Belfast could be changed to the advantage of the entire neighbourhood.

One of the best known national memorials is The Unknown Warrior. There is no memorial to the Unknown Peacemaker.

A possible design for an international one could feature an appropriate sculpture flanked, on either side of the peace line, with sections of high walls.

The walls could be adorned with poetry and quotations contributed by UN member states. Flags of all nations could be flown on a rotation basis.
