This weekend marks a very important date in the history of this great nation, the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. After much discussion, a memorial was conceived for the former site of the World Trade Center that was destroyed in this attack.
The centerpiece of this memorial are two magnificent fountains, pictured here. I find this extremely fitting, as water is essential to life, and it stands as one of Humanity’s most enduring symbols of life. While 9/11 marked horrific loss of life, the message that this memorial speaks to me is that life is eternal, and no action by Man can change that. And that message of hope and confidence is conveyed by my favorite subject: Water!
