September 11th Remembered in Second Life

The eighth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States did not pass unnoticed in Second Life.

New World Notes links to about a dozen assorted SL events commemorating 9/11 and offers this comment:

[T]he reflecting pool pictured above [is] the creation of Liam Kanno… in real life a New York ad executive who lived near Ground Zero, but after the terror attacks, joined a monastery and created the Second Life site, as part of his healing process.


Liam’s memorial site is where I just met Mark Benelli… He describes himself as a firefighter in real life, based in Germany. He doesn’t know any brethren based in New York, but he wore his uniform and visited the memorial site, to pay tribute to their valor on that day…
