All members of the UD community were invited Tuesday to lay a piece of tile in ‘The Seed of Life’ mosaic.

It is part of the permanent memorial honoring the nine victims of the mass shooting in Oregon nearly five years ago.

The memorial will also remember the first responders and families affected by the 2019 Oregon District shooting.

The two-day event had great success and several people came out with heavy hearts as they added their titles to the final commemoration.

“Whether it’s honoring the lives lost in the mass shooting or simply honoring a friend or loved one affected by gun violence,” Dion Green, founder of the Fudge Foundation, told News Center 7. “I really think it’s important when you We’re creating something in the community that’s community driven and all hands of the community are a part of it.”

The mosaic will be completed on August 4 and placed in the plaza on East Fifth Street, not far from Wayne Avenue next to the Trolley Stop in the Oregon District.
