Ruby Tuesday Too - School Memorial


Ruby Tuesday Too returns for the week as do I. Today I go literally around the corner of our home to Emmett O'Brien Technical High School in Ansonia, and what we have seen for a week is hundreds of small American flags on the grounds of the school. It is part of a remembrance of the events on September 11 2001, a true day of evil and infamy...the school has not just the planted flags, but has also created a memorial garden as well. The sheetmetal shop created the metallic towers casting a slight shadow over a flower garden and more flags. On top is a closer view of the inscribed memorial to the victims, to the left is a full view of the towers, to the right, a mere snippet of the red-white-blue that fills the lawn. It is a small but mighty memorial that we never can forget all history that as affected our republic - that we as a people will endure and thrive through anything and everything...

Very nicely captured images of a very nicely thought out and executed concept.

Thank you, Ralph. I work with many students who were so young that 9/11 is only the blurriest of memories. Memorials like this help to keep history alive.

A very nice and appropriate red for Ruby Tuesday Too this week. Good job.
