A Fitting Tribute

A Fitting Tribute

Dear Editor;

In response to whomever wrote the anonymous editorial last week in The Wave, we definitely do need a piece of artwork as a fitting tribute to those from Rockaway who were lost on 9/11/01. "Fancy", however, is not a word that has ever come up in discussion.

There will, of course, be stone and steel from Ground Zero, the names of the deceased will also be incorporated and a diverse panel of local citizens will select the final design.

As Chair of the Tribute Design Committee, I can attest that, after a year of meetings and community input, there is a groundswell of requests and support for a site- specific and unique testament to our loved ones.

GEOFF RAWLING
