After a very emotionally exhausting journey into the realm of anguish, of which I only had a glimpse, I can say I am one of those 5200 entrants. I'm responding to this posting, only because I am wanting to share some personal thoughts in the design process of this historically poignant competition. Not for fame or recognition, but to continue my quest in finding the answer to the following question: How does an artist successfully recognize the victims, remember 9/11/01's story, and rebuild a site where so many lives were irrevocably changed? Survivors, families of victims, people of New York, the USA, the many affected. It's a personal question that we had to try to answer through our designs.

Let's focus on and memorialize NOT the artist but the victims and families. Egos and advertisements be damned....there should be NO ROOM for such things.

The number one thing I hope the design chosen will do is give peace and solace to the families, survivors, and visitors to the site.
Good luck--not to the entrants, but to the jurors who have to choose the most respectful and suitable of designs. I'm sure the stress of your decisions is wearing. Thank you for your dedication.
