Back in April my friends and I visited the Freedom Tower where the Twin Towers once stood.
My breath was immediately taken away. The emotion I felt I had never felt before as I broke down in tears I felt the spirit of every soul that was lost during that tragic event. I just couldn’t understand why these monsters
wanted to take all those peoples lives. I pray that every soul that was lost on 9/11 is at peace, I pray that their families lives are now at peace.
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,977 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations.
The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.
