In loving memory – Sara Low Memorial Dog Park dedicated

A ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony was held last week for the Sara Low Memorial Dog Park in Batesville, Arkansas.

Sara Low was a flight attendant who was aboard American Airlines Flight 11 on the morning of September 11, 2001, when the plane was taken over by hijackers and flown into the World Trade Center.

Alyson Low, Sara’s sister, spoke at the dedication, telling the crowd, “[The dog park is] also meaningful because it’s a reminder of a bright spot in the shadows in lower Manhattan, that has given my parents and me an emotional respite after memorial ceremonies at Ground Zero. On our way back to the hotel, we’d stop by a dog park along the promenade by the Hudson River and watched dogs romp in a shallow pool, play keep-away with tennis balls, and do what dogs do best: Exist in the moment with a purity of heart. It’s always helped to lift our mood and remind us of the good things in life. And the good things in life would still be very much wanted by Sara for us all: Her family, her friends, and her hometown.”

Sara’s parents, Bobbie and Mike Low, attended the ceremony as well, reports Sara Greene for the Batesville Daily Guard.
