|Brower's Youth Awards|
On October 13, 2001 Deland Chan was honored with the Brower Youth Award for her contribution for creating a garden project at the 92nd Street Y . Her speech touched on life after Sept 11 2001. Here is an excerpt from the speech she made at the awards ceremony.
Now is the time is unite and expand the matrix of human support. It is the time to grow stronger, not weaker. Repopulate the garden with philosophers, creators, skeptics. Rebuild.
Most importantly, let the joy of human capacity triumph again. Thank you.
