9/11 Rescue Workers Tribute

In 2002 New Jersey sculptor Brian Hanlon created "Angel in Anguish" for the town of Brick. A year later, the town of Pennsauken paid Brian to make a World Trade Center monument for them, too. The result was the more optimistic, "We Shall Never Forget," unveiled on 9/11/2003. The sculpture shows a life-size, sitting businessman, dazed and disheveled, encircled by concerned emergency workers: a policeman, fireman, EMT, and a rescue dog.

The bronze figures are surrounded by a plaza of granite paving blocks engraved with affirmations such as "We Bleed Red, White, and Blue" from a local insurance company.
