This year’s construction included a coffin with a police officer’s cap on top, photocopied faces of public safety officers who perished, miscellaneous shoes and clothing, American flags and a list of the dead.
The temporary memorial, or art installation, or whatever you want to call is her way of honoring those who died when terrorists flew jets into in the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and into a field in Pennsylvania. This marks the eighth year for the display.
Ms. DuBose said she keeps coming back and creating new memorials every Sept. 11 “because I don’t want them to be forgotten. It was a terrible storm of life. … Hell was presented that day.”
“Do Remember Me” read a banner facing Griffith Street. Ms. DuBose said that was the theme of this year’s creation.
It wasn’t clear how long the shrine would remain. As she talked to a reporter, a town mowing contractor was preparing to start mowing the field, which is at the corner of Griffith Street and Lakeside Avenue.
