For twenty-seven years I wore it, but I'll soon put it away for the second time.

Dawn Reno Langley Dawn Reno Langley's blog:
Sometimes the kids' books are tougher to read (and to read) than the adult books are. Such was the case with this book, but I thought it needed to be written.

Sometimes inspiration isn't necessarily positive, as well. Again, that was the case with this book.

I would like to introduce myself and work by saying that I never gave much thought about memorials until 2003. It was then that a competition was announced to design a memorial in NYC for 9/11 - open to anyone, anywhere.
