South Tower pool with names of those who perished, etched in stone surrounding the pool.
In the center of the South Tower pool, a deep, black abyss.
Deeper into the innter pool, feeling of utter helplessness as you sense there's no bottom, just an emptyness.
A man stares into the pool - frustration, anger, deep sadness, helplessness - even a bit defiant, just as the US flag protrudes out from someone's name - equally defiant.
Sadly, names etched into perpetuaty...
Water pours endliessly into the pool - as individual streams.
If you look more closely - there are individual drops flowing over the sides - each droplet a lost human soul.
