Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Between Morning and Midnight
Maryland Fire Rescue Services Memorial Sculpture
The lower area represents our world of family and community occupied by the kneeling mother, supporting child and elderly man. There is room for the visitors to join and take part in the memorial. The upper stairs are raised and seperated from the lower area distinguishing the two worlds. Rising above and ascending the staircase, the fire and rescue persons turn to reflect on their departing world.
The seven ascending steps represent the seven days of the week. Every day they go to work to serve and protect our lives while never knowing when that tragic day may come.
A keystone with the bronze bagpipe signifies the sounds of ceremony and the threshold of the spiritual world.
The firefighter and EMS provider represent all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to serve and also all those who continue and have selflessly served our needs. The kneeling woman represents the mother left behind, shocked,
All figures are reaching out to touch, console, say goodbye and share their lost love. The sculpture represents our community showing gratitude while proudly honoring those who serve.
Scupltor, Rodney Carroll.
