Last Night, Miami Students Chalked A Tribute To 9/11 Outside Citi Field
Late Tuesday evening, a group of Miami Ad School students spray chalked a tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks at Citi Field. Mets fans exiting the subway will be greeted with an over twenty-foot rendition of the home team’s logo, but with a poignant addition to the skyline: the silhouette of the twin towers. Underneath, a message to “Never Forget.”
“We thought there was a special significance to this home game, an opportunity that couldn’t be missed,” the students explained. “In twelve years life has returned to normal, people are enjoying the city again, but we wanted to remind everyone to keep their thoughts with those we lost that day.”
Nice job by Stefan Haverkamp (instructor), Evan Barkoff, Jimmy Morrissey, Temnete Sebhatu, Joe Russomano, Kelsey Stalnaker, Jesselle Valdes and Livia Saad.
Thank you for your fine effort and a wonderful memorial to the people of our city and those Met fans who will get to see this tonight.
