The Sphere ~ Wordless Wednesday

I wanted to give the information that is on the plaque where The Sphere has been placed. It will help to understand what is is ~


"For three decades this sculpture stood in the plaza of the World Trade Center. Entitled "The Sphere, " it was conceived by artist Fritz Koenig as a symbol of World Peace. It was damaged during the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but endures as an icon of hope and the indestructible spirit of this country. The Sphere was placed here on March 11, 2002 as a temporary memorial to all who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks at The World Trade Center.

This eternal flame was ignited on September 11, 2002 in honor of all of those who were lost. Their spirit And Sacrifice will never be forgotten."


Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
