Remembrance
Our world can be reshaped in a single day.
September 11, 2001 was such a day.

This memorial includes a stainless steel sculpture
depicting an aerial view of Lower Manhattan,
historic timeline of the day's events, and a 1,628-pound
artifact recovered from the World Trade Center. This
twisted section of steel is a portion of an exterior panel
used on floors 101-104 of one of the towers.
This piece was given to Suwanee by the Port Authority
of New York and New Jersey.
