Light is quite amazing.
Even though we often take for granted it can make all the difference.
Without it, we are often powerless.
We lose our way.
It also inspires us and leaves us in awe.
We use light to guide us and assure us things will be ok. It keep us going in the right direction.
It gives us hope and something to look forward to.
It is an art form and medium in itself.
It sets a mood
Light helps us celebrate
and enhances unforgettable memories.
It brightens up people’s days.
And often symbolizes beacons of hope and normalcy.
But most importantly, Light is a statement with a message to help us remember and commemorate.
“I hope that seeings this beacon in the night sky will provide people with a sense of peace and security in this time of crisis, and that it will unify us with its presence, so we remember that we are all in this together”- Yvette Mattern, responsible for installation

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
