Below design from one side looks like 11/6 but most everybody
knows from this venue you can't see 9/11 as everybody else
does. Similarly, you can't depend that everybody will always
see things like you do and thus this is the perfect design
to remind us life is perception and misperception based on
right and wrong perspective of individual(s) and dogma(s)
and not always the same as our own.
Nine raised a couple of feet off ground, loop of nine a cement
pond with U.S. flag rising from center and pool interior painted
with flags of every country.
Bronze slash with all the names of each American hero lost.
Ones in marble or mosaic to look like World Trade Centers
I and II.
A nurturing, oasis park-like area with impeccable landscaping
and a few benches swings too since the wind at September 11,
2002, ground zero memorial was so special to the survivors.
Ceramic oval photos, like you see at cemeteries, of each
American hero lost lining walls on first floor. Elevators
to upper floors of twin towers on first floors painted to
look like twin towers or like a hologram.
Two buildings dedicated to those lost in the World Trade
Centers and one building for Pentagon and one for Pennsylvania
with a chapel in each for survivors of American heroes lost.
A place to unite by a tragedy that united us all. If rent
has to be twice as high to accommodate space lost in favor
of safety, well, our most valuable stock is human life.
