“I had the inexplicable thrill of welding a shred of an illegal gun onto the tribute monument being created by the incredible Michael Kalish. Once the piece had cooled, I wrote on it, with a silver sharpie, “Destroyed. Never to Destroy Again” …I was overwhelmed with emotion when I saw what was being created and realized the impact this large scale public art installation will have on so many people who have suffered so much loss.” – Jessica Mindich
