The poet, Heinrich Heine wrote, "I do not know whether my present poems are better than the earlier ones. But this is certain: they are much sadder and sweeter, like pain dipped in honey."
I don't know if the new WTC complex can be as grand as the former, but it must be sadder and sweeter. I hope to see metaphors emerge in the final design that will provide such full acknowledgment of the pain, yet with a soothing comfort. This is why I propose, among other things, a chapel built of twisted girders from the wreckage, encased in glass, with a slight golden tint - a beautiful physical expression of the poet's metaphor.
