9/11 Memorial

Steve Tobin - Trinity RootSo far, the one memorial in the vicinity of Ground Zero to mark that Muslim Fundamentalist atrocity on 11 September 2001 is Trinity Root by the Pennsylvanian sculptor Steve Tobin, his inspiration the news of a 70-year-old sycamore tree felled by the impact of the collapsing towers. Not only did the tree absorb shockwaves, but also it fell in such a way that it shielded St Paul's Chapel at Trinity Church and its ancient tombstones from falling debris. Trinity Root stands at the corner of Wall Street and Broadway and has been visited by approximately 1.5 million people. The Russian teardrop is due to be installed tomorrow: 9/11.
