Reflection and Remembrance ...





"No day shall erase you 
from the memory of time." 
                ~ Virgil
                          ~ 70 B.C. - 19 B.C.

A portion of the new Oculus sculpture that tops the World Trade Center Transportation Hub joins with other nearby buildings in Lower Manhattan in reflecting on an outside wall of the National September 11 Memorial Museum on a picturesque April day in New York City.

The sculpture is the creation of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

The Virgil quote has been fashioned out of salvaged remnants of damaged World Trade Center steel and is located in Memorial Hall inside the museum, where it will stand in perpetuity at the site of the attacks as a promise that we will never forget those taken from us on that terrible day.
