Rhapsody in blue: a symbol for a city still in mourning

“Trying To Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning”

Of all the memories from that unforgettable September day, it is the color of the sky that people talk most about. “So blue,” they say. “So crystalline.” It makes sense, after all. The sky was the World Trade Center’s habitat, the ever-changing backdrop to its beauty. And the source of its destruction.

That sky is given pride of place  among the  many artifacts now exhibited in the newly opened Sept. 11 Memorial Museum.  Created by artist Spencer Finch,“Trying To Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning” features thousands of hand-painted blue squares, each a different hue and dedicated to each of the 2983 individuals who lost their lives when the towers fell.

Adding yet another shade to the memory of the day and the innocence that disappeared into the clear blue sky.
