Symbols of Remembrance and Reflection

Symbols have meaning, but their meaning can be different from person to person. After a grand conversation and viewing of an assortment of symbols, scholars create a commemorative banner to memorialize the heroes and victims of September 11th. They then share their finished products orally and in writing, detailing the meaning of their banner and why they chose the symbols they did.
