Sorrowful tributes

Jamaicans on Sunday paid tribute to children killed in violent circumstances during an annual Child Month ritual at The Secret Gardens monument at the intersection of Church and Tower streets in downtown Kingston.

Erected in 2008, the sorrowful monument was the original brainchild of the then Kingston and St Andrew Corporation, now Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation, with support from corporate Jamaica.

Designed by sculptor Paul Napier, it sits in a small green space bearing names of children who died violently since 2004.
