Yesterday, I stopped by the Cyclorama, where the Medicine Wheel vigil has been held, with my parents. The Cyclorama has its own amazing history. It once housed a circular art installation of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Each year, there is a collection of vessels, ready to accept the offering that people want to leave. These vessels may look like eggs boxes, suitcases and trunks, but during the vigil, they are the sum of their parts, a symbolic healing place.
Michael is back to air and the items that have been left for the past 21 years are now hanging on red ribbon. Visitors to the installation will add their own red aids ribbons in memory of loved ones lost.
