9/11 Ripples

Physical remnants of impossible images that held us transfixed before our TVs, of smoke billowing from twin towers, have now been placed in every state — tortured iron mounted in shining marble or stainless steel, dead among the living. It is a curious thing to pass each day.

 

Idaho’s 9/11 memorial is in Riverside Park near the the Fallen Firefighters Memorial. The design by Amber Conger¹ is meant to evoke “brave souls all connected like ripples in a pond.”²
