A new addition to the Wall of Hope in Providence that commemorates 9/11 will be dedicated Wednesday evening.
The Wall of Hope has been at Waterplace Park officially since Sept. 11, 2002, a year after the attacks.
The memorial was built with more than 11,000 tiles that were painted by children and adults from all walks of life. The names of local victims have been added to the two pillars or towers at the entrance of the memorial.
The head of the group behind the memorial, Rhode Island for Community and Justice, said the families had talked to them over the years about their desire to have their loved ones permanently recognized.
There are 12 names printed in glass mosaic tiles. They are victims who were from the area or born around here.
