A 9-11 Memorial
Tom Ullom’s thirteen-year journey to ensure the reality of these memorials shows a living commitment to the community’s call to action.
Westerville is a community that values those committed to the safety and well-being of its citizens. Firefighter Tom Ullom had a dream to recognize the community’s and the nation’s First Responders. A piece of twisted steel from the North Tower of World Trade Center, and the sculpture, “The Crossing,” depicting a firefighter crossing a threshold, remind all to act as first responders, moving toward danger to help rather than running away.
The remembrance of 9/11 and the Firefighters Memorial in the shadow of the Fire Station challenge to visitors to consider what they can do to serve their neighbors. Tom Ullom’s thirteen-year journey to ensure the reality of these memorials provides a living commitment to our community’s call to action.
