Tribute Mints

These mints are a unique object. They by themselves are not notable, but instead, of interest is the way they are packaged and the story related on the tin they are packed in. The tin relates the events of 9/11, and highlights one specific individual, Major Dwayne Williams, who died during the Pentagon attack. The tin also states that the sale of the mints benefits a memorial fund for his family. Each mint has a bible scripture message printed on the wrapper. Overall, a striking object that has a religious and patriotic message. Also, a perfect example of a household, everyday item that demonstrates the impact of 9/11. In this case, someone make the specific decision to develop a response to the events of 9/11 using mints. These mints accomplish the following: commemorate this tragedy, invoke patriotism, honor an individual and raise money.
