I also praise you for going forward with ideas for a memorial. If the
dreams were not shattered, what would they have been? Fact is, they
were shattered. So, now we honor those who died and keep their memory
and move on, never to be the same, but move on. The word unshattered,
first makes me wonder if it is a word. Second, makes me try to figure
out just what it means. I think it takes me too long to grasp the
intent of the memorial. If I saw it in constext with your design, I
might not have this initial response. The word dreams in your title is
nice. I just don't know that I see "unshattered" as the adjective to go
with a memorial. I don't want to be negative either. I would love to
see your sketches sometime. Can you put them on Yahoo Photos? Tell us
more about why you chose the word "unshattered" and what it means to you
in this context. I guess if our dreams of innocence as a country and
world and the innocent life dreams ofj the immediate victims and their
families were forever shattered by the event, there must be new dreams
to unshatter the shattered dreams? I think we were all victims on that
day. We can all feel the pain of the grieving and loss, not only to the
families and the friends of those who died, but to our way of life as it
was.
