Tree for Peace planting
in memory of Marine Lance Cpl. Jesus A. Suarez Del Solar who died in combat March 27, 2003 in Iraq
Kit Carson Park
(behind the fire station)
3333 Bear Valley Parkway
A message from the family of Cpl. Jesus Alberto Suarez del Solar Navarro:
I am writing to you to express greetings from my family and to extend an invitation for this coming February 14 when we will plant a "Tree for Peace" in honor of my son L/Cpl. Jesus Alberto Suarez del Solar Navarro, who died during the war in Iraq. As you know, during my recent trip to Iraq I gathered soil from the spot where my son fell. This soil will be combined with soil from Mexico and the United States to plant a tree symbolizing peace and harmony among nations and in remembrance of all those who died during the invasion of Iraq.
I request your invaluable assistance in spreading the word to the community so that its members can attend the ceremony.
The ceremony will take place in Escondido, California, on February 14 at 10:45 a.m. in Kit Carson Park behind the fire station.
During the ceremony white doves will be released as symbols of peace. There also will a performance of Aztec dance. We ask all participants to bring a white rose which will be placed around the tree.
We are expecting a number of elected officials to attend. Assemblyman Juan Vargas is confirmed and we are waiting for confirmation from Bob Filner, Xavier Becerra, Hilda Solis, Maxine Waters, Randy "Duke" Cunningham, among others. Representatives of the U.S. Marine Corps may also attend.
Hoping to see you at the ceremony, we remain
POR UNA GENERACION LLENA DE PAZ Y AMOR!!
EL GUERRERO AZTECA
Que dios les bendiga.
