An incredibly moving memorial marking the tragic loss of life that occurred on 9-11. Two pools roughly one acre each in size, with 30ft waterfalls represent the footprints of the original towers. The names of those lost are inscribed in parapets surrounding the pools. In some ways this reminds me of the Srebrenica memorial. In places that represent great loss, somehow exude great peace. The innocent lives lost in 9-11 deserve and should be remembered. For me, that isn’t limited to the names inscribed at this memorial. It includes every innocent life lost in the countless global tragedies that unfolded and continue to unfold every day since. How many acres would we need to memorialise the lives lost in Syria? #9-11 #NewYork #Memorial #GroundZero #new_york_photoshoots #nycityworld #newyork_instagram (at World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial, NYC)
