“It takes a village.” This was one of Chris Edwards’ favorite proverbs that reflects his and his sister’s shared value of the importance of community. Naming the proposed park at 4391 Danforth Rd in Southwest Atlanta is a meaningful way to honor his and his sister’s legacy. There are many individuals who are deserving of this honor; however, it would resonate most with the community by dedicating it to Christopher Edwards II and Erin Edwards. 

Chris and Erin touched the lives of many, not only in Atlanta, but across the country. Chris and Erin were tragically taken from the world too soon, leaving a wake of devastation for the thousands of people who knew and loved them. That is why a group of us who knew and loved Chris and Erin came together to continue their legacy of bringing people together. The park in southwest Atlanta was an important area for them and their family. Chris and Erin grew up in that very neighborhood and would often be found playing in the creek that runs through the area. We would like to take this unique opportunity to honor Chris and Erin by dedicating this park, a meaningful piece of their childhood, to their memory. 

“It takes a village”; this is certainly true if we are to make this park a tribute to the legacy and values of Chris and Erin Edwards by creating a space for people to come together, build relationships, and strengthen our community.
