As the ultimate gesture of unity, the concept is to create a communal memorial/urn where people can opt in to have their ashes stored with people from all walks of life. This monument would stand as a symbol of unity and equality under all humankind.
With room running out for burials this One Memorial would store the ashes of everyone who wanted to be part of it. It would be a place of loved ones and friends of the deceased to meet and reflect with other grievers and start conversation with people from all walks of life who have experienced the same loss as oneself. All while sending the message that we are all the same, connected with each other. I am imaging the memorial to be able to incorporate technology, to where the images of the deceased would be displayed with personal messages, that would be uploaded via a social network, either by the dying before their death or their friends and family. This social network would also connect all grieving and create a platform of support and a place to share useful information and resources.
