Everyone is familiar with the Kennedy Memorial in downtown Dallas. Exhibit curator Ralph Isenberg wanted to expand on the concept of the Memorial to reflect on the life of Kennedy and reflect more of the emotional impact his death had on America. "Peaceful Reflection" invokes the look of the Memorial, but adds a personal touch with quotes from President Kennedy.
"Peaceful Reflection" also allows for visitors themselves to interact, by recording their thoughts and recollections of both national and personal tragedies. Visitors are asked to share their thoughts of not only the Kennedy assassination, but the Challenger disaster and the September 11 attacks as well.
