NEW JERSEY — New Jersey is installing fiber optic gyrations in honor of the fallen in the recent wave of terrorist attacks.
A fiber optic ribbon, or wreath of wreathes, will be installed around the state.
It will include wreathed fibers of red, white and blue along with white and green ribbons of green and red.
The fiber optic cord is meant to show support for the fallen.
The wreathe is also meant to symbolize the fallen, said Linda Brown, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey State Police.
The wreath will be in the shape of a wreath with the words, “My soul belongs to you,” along with a message in red letters.
It is the first time the state has had such a ribbon installed.
“I know that when the families come home and hear the news, they will be very proud and feel they are part of a good thing,” Brown said.
Fiber optic gylves have been around for centuries in many places.
This is the latest iteration of a project called “Fiber on the Worn Wreath” in which families and friends are encouraged to make wreath-style wreatts, a tradition that has been going on for years in New York and across the country.
