Among the words, quotations, and art installations at Poppy Plaza on Memorial Drive is this word.

‘Solace’ is a word that can be defined as comfort in a time of stress, support in a time of sadness, or to share cheer in order to raise one’s spirits.

My wish for this new year is to have a peaceful home, community, city, country, and world. If any of us should feel distress, we can turn to one another for solace.
