A Beau Geste: the 9/11 Tear Drop Memorial

There are no words,

just the names of those

who were murdered that day.

Our thoughts, hearts, and prayers

go out to the victims, survivors, and

loved ones of the victims of the

September 11th attacks.

We will not forget.

  1. I just learned of the tear drop from a fellow blogger last week as I have not seen a single thing about it. I understand it is a gift from Russia. (?)

    Yes, it was a gift from Russia, on the 5th anniversary in 2006. There are links to the articles about it, below the picture, that have more info about it. 🙂


  2. I had also never seen the memorial. It’s quite striking.
    I will certainly never forget.

    It seems quite appropriate somehow, doesn’t it? I like it. 🙂
    Hopefully, no one will, dear Spark. It must have been bad for you guys up there too.

    Thanks, didn’t know this existed.

    My pleasure, Sneaky. 🙂 I didn’t know it existed until it’d been up a couple of years either. Seems it was mostly ignored in the press.
