No day shall erase you by domenicododaro

No day shall erase you

I was rather impressed that the 9/11 memorial contained an art installation whose center is this verse of the Latin poet Virgil: "No day shall erase you from the memory of time".
This is cool, nice pov - (I wondered if you were posting to mark Holocaust Day - for which we had a lot of coverage)

I bought a mobius sterling silver bracelet when I visited there in 2014 with this verse on of my favorite pieces.

As I said, I love the quote and wear it on a bracelet. I was surprised to find out its use was controversial.

@gardenfolk An interesting read. Only, I think Mrs. Alexander did not consider at all the metaphor, intrinsic of the poem. The columnist seems to think that Virgil just wrote a line on two soldiers/companions/lovers who died in action, not a poem that seeks the very substance of humankind. Don't know, like saying that "Oedipus Rex" is a story about an orphan... Please, continue loving the quote: it talks about love, friendship and misfortune, and I can't see which of those concepts should not apply to those - civilians, policemen or firemen - who lost their lives on 9/11.
@overalvandaan Thanks a lot, Saxa!

It's a wonderful line.
