There are a number of objects that use light or flames to create a connection between the consumer (object owner) and the tribute item. Here is an object that is unmistakeable in appearance. This object would be more likely used during the anniversary of September 11th, and would also seem to be imagined sitting at a shrine of some sort to this event. I'm sure many will see the religious connection in terms of act and even meaning. Lastly, it does seem ironic that a company would choose to create such a tribute to house a flame/candle when the intense heat from the planes' impacts is what led to the collapse of the towers.
