Art has always been a vehicle for healing, and it is no exception at the 9-11 Memorial and Museum. One of the most prominent examples is a wall-to-wall installation that consists of 2,983 watercolors, each one representing one of those who died in the World Trade Center attacks in 1993 and 2001. Artist Spencer Finch created each one of the pieces to be a unique shade of blue to “remember the color of the sky” on the fateful September morning.

As part of the piece, steel from the Trade Center was forged into letters to form this powerful quote from Virgil: “No day shall erase you from the memory of time.”

Let that sink in for a minute.

No matter how bad things are, no matter how your end comes, no matter how insignificant you may feel at times, you are leaving an indelible mark on this world and no day shall erase you. Capitalize on the opportunity you have to make an impact.
