In Memory

Tumbling Woman, 2002, Eric Fischl"[The sculpture] was a sincere expression of deepest sympathy for the vulnerability of the human condition. Both specifically towards the victims of Sept. 11 and towards humanity in general." - E. Fischl

  3. This is my first visit to your blog. I read your comment on Jenny's blog and was struck by the tragedy that became very personal to your family after 9/11. My heart contracted with pain for you all.

    blessings,

  4. I think I remember the artist wanted to place this statue in NYC but it was considered too painful at the time. The image of the people jumping from the towers is haunting.

  5. You know, I have ever thought about this...we hear about the 80 kids who were born after their dad's were killed, but I wonder how many woman who were pregnant were killed ?
    I agree with Pat, I can't watch the pics of the people falling to their deaths.
    My son was flying on business that day from Logan Airport, and I thank God everyday he wasn't on one of those planes. It was hours before we knew he wasn't.
    May we never forget.
