9/11 affected me deeply as my childhood revolved around lower Manhattan. My quilt, Ground Zero Reborn, captures my healing journey and my perception of how the site has healed over time. The three joined scenes in my quilt, “Remember”, “Respect”, and “Rebirth” trace the evolution of Ground Zero from destruction, through commemoration (the Memorial Reflecting Pools), to its regeneration. This last phase was crystalized for me when I stood in 2017 and viewed the Occulus building, now rising from the site, and saw it as a white dove rising to the heavens with the souls of those lost and our hope for the future.
