“Never Forget” by Lex Machine

Lex reminds us of September 11, 2001 with his new installation “Never Forget”…

There are hardly words to describe this event properly,
I remember we were all sitting in our offices when the news of the tragic events of that day reached us.

First, we were all overcome with dumbfoundedness and then with horror and compassion as well as deep sorrow for all those who lost their lives that day.

The horror of the atrocity made my body tremble… the tears just ran down and I don’t think any of us could take care of the daily work anymore. On every monitor and everywhere were life reports from the USA.

Today, after 20 years, I look at this meaningful and powerful installation in Second Life that Lex made to teach us to never forget, to honor all those who lost their lives.

I have hope that we will all learn to be better people.
I know it’s hard work to be a better person, but the experience taught me that it’s worth working on yourself, educating yourself and keeping your ego under control.

It is worth to be positive, to be compassionate for your fellow human beings and all living species, to appreciate nature and mother earth and to protect and grow all that we are, what we have and where we are.

I hearty invite you all, dear friends to take a moment to visit and pause at this installation & never forget!

Teleport to “Never Forget”

“The Names” by Billy Collins – Poem about the 2,792 who perished on 11 September 2001

Names etched on
the head of a pin.

One name spanning
a bridge, another
undergoing a tunnel.

A blue name needled
into the skin.

Names of citizens,
workers, mothers,
and fathers,

The bright-eyed
daughter, the quick son.

Alphabet of names in
a green field.

Names in the small tracks of birds.

Names lifted from a hat

Or balanced on
the tip of the tongue.

Names wheeled
into the dim warehouse
of memory.

So many names, there
is barely room on
the walls of the heart.”
