Text on the memorial:
in Remembrance US, NOW We move through heavy days, wading through the river of routine, carrying on, because we must. While evil shrinks to its dense core, we grow into a family of open hands. In every room, we search for one to clasp, one to kiss, embrace of us. We mourn. We bow our heads to find our real voices, to refuse the columns of names and make each name its own list of one. Now we look over the flat lawns, carefully tended, smooth as dreams in which we survive one more day. We remember the earth has been broken. We plant a tree. Here it rises without a sound. Here we stop and listen. By Jim Daniels, professor of English Carnegie Mellon University October 13, 2001 Written in remembrance of our distinguished alumni and friends lost on September 11, 2001 Lawrence Kim Frederick Kuo, Jr. Gary Lasko Alan Linton Norma Lang Steuerle Jonathan Uman Matthew D.
