As we reported, Max Bond passed away yesterday. We’re already getting condolences from far and wide–more on that soon–but we also wanted to open up the blog and encourage readers to submit their own thoughts and memories. Please submit them in the comments section below.
UPDATE: Here’s a thoughtful note from Michael Arad, who worked with Bond on the World Trade Center Memorial:
The last time I saw Max was shortly before the election – we were both filled with hope and apprehension – and in retrospect, we were both coming at it from very different places but with similar desires. I am glad that he lived to see the election and all that it represented, especially for him, and I am sorry that he won’t be with us for the dedication of the Memorial.
