“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I had to go to campus today and I got a first hand look at the recent deconstruction of the Kirwan Blanding complex. As you can see, they’ve begun the deconstruction of the towers. Because the materials used in construction are heavy with carcinogens, implosion is not an option. Therefore, they’re slowing disassembling each building. Around the office we had wondered aloud if facilities have a time lapse camera rolling somewhere nearby. I really hope they do because it will be fascinating to see when it’s over. The skyline is going to look mighty lonely without those towers, but boy, what great memories they gave me (as a pizza delivery driver) and so many other wildcats (who actually lived in them).
