Towers of Light
The finest, most elegantly elegiac tribute to 9/11 that has been created was conceived within days of the event: a pair of ghostly beams shining for a few short nights on each anniversary of the day. They are everything the billion dollar memorial is not; optimistic, weightless, made of light and silent. They take up no physical space, while occupying vast territories of sky and heart. They illuminate small flocks of birds passing through the beam with a sparkle and sense of life that is the closest thing to heavenly ascension that this atheist has ever witnessed.
