Mar 20, 2014 — I have wonderful news and heartfelt thanks to the more than 6,200 people from throughout Philadelphia. and around the world that believed that anything is possible and signed this petition. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter announced today that he has a firm commitment from the Salvation Army to donate to the City its property - the site of a former Salvation Army Thrift Store - where my daughter Anne Bryan and five others were killed last June.

We commend and thank the Mayor and the Salvation Army for doing the right thing. The all-volunteer 22nd and Market Memorial Committee has been working to design and fundraise for the park.

We now need to raise $250,000, no donation is too small. Please donate what you can by going to

We are humbled and grateful for your support and compassion.
