It reminds us that brave men and women fight terrorism, domestic terrorism and foreign terrorism everyday. I worked for Homeland Security with Customs and Border Protection and I know there are dedicated officers that do their best to fight terrorism and protect our borders. On April 19, 1995, US Customs, Department of the Treasury lost two officers.
We cannot say enough about our military force...the best of the best.
|Gates of Time|
|The chairs represent each person lost on that day and the|
floor they died on, 9 floors of the building.
Field of Empty Chairs.
The chairs are where the building once stood.
|The Survivor Tree|
The tree, an American Elm 90+ years old , was surrounded by burning cars.
Glass base of the chairs represents beacons of hope.
