A beautiful structure, a memory of a terrible day...

I had enough time before a flight on September 19th to seek out the recently dedicated 9/11 memorial at Boston's Logan Airport.

A glass cube surrounds glass panels containing the names of the passengers & crew of the two flights that left Logan Airport on that fateful day. The outside of the structure is made up of thin slabs of glass, alternating in placement, each panel offset from the next. Looking up, there are floating pieces of glass. Two simple benches stand within the structure, a place to sit in quiet contemplation.

A place of peace in a busy airport...
