I went just before dark recently, and had the pleasure of chatting with a fireman who knew a lot about this memorial. He shared a few things with me, first telling me that Westford firefighter David Christiana, a sculptor, created the 9-11 memorial. The granite and green glass came from Pennsylvania and represents the field where Flight 93 crashed on the field, the middle base is in the shape of the octagon represents the Pentagon and the bronze work is beautifully engraved with an image of the Twin Towers and names of all 92 Massachusetts heroes who died that day. The caldron holds some metal from one of the collapsed Twin Towers.
92 names engraved on the ribbon, surrounding the Towers.
