9-11 Memorial Plaque…

This September marks the 10th anniversary of the attack our country sustained at the World Trade Center in 2001.  The events of that day are embedded in my mind and heart… I will never forget the horrific images or the sadness that I felt that day.  So many lives lost..so many Fathers, Mothers, children, firemen, police, brothers, sisters,  a loss of unimaginable proportions.  The bravery of so many heroes who gave their lives trying to save others…the lives of so many that were changed forever the day our country was attacked.

The plaque is a decoupage of images from 9-11…I placed a “clock” with the hands frozen on the time each tower was hit…the butterfly, made from polymer clay, a symbol of resurrection, has the number of lost souls that were taken from us that day…the polymer heart separated with a copper “break” represents our hearts that were broken that day, and the wings symbolize that we will soar, as a country, above this assault.

My hope is to donate this plaque to the 9-11 Memorial in Acton, Massachusetts.  Madeline “Amy” Sweeney, and Philip Rosenzweig, both residents of Acton, lost their lives that day.
