National September 11 Memorial & Museum

We all remember the tragic events of September 11, 2001. These terrorist attacks are unprecedented in recent history. It has made everybody realize that no country and no citizens are safe from murderers who are ready to sacrifice a great number of innocent people for the sake of their aims.


The complex is situated at the former location of the Twin Towers at The World Trade Center site. The author of the project was an Israeli architect Michael Arad who won the competition in January, 2004. The project was developed in cooperation with Peter Walker, a landscape architect, and features a group of trees surrounding two square pools which are located at the place of the 2 destroyed Towers.

The museum located right under the memorial was opened to the public in 2014, currently it presents a huge number of photos, videos and artifacts.

The major mission of the memorial is to commemorate all the victims of the horrible attacks of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001, including those brave who lost their lives trying to rescue other people. It also aims at recognizing the courage and strength of those who managed to survive. Moreover, the memorial symbolizes gratitude towards people who demonstrated their compassion and solidarity with the American society at that sorrowful time.

Let us always remember that human life is priceless and no aims, political or other, can ever justify a murder of even a single person!

Absolutely! Some people have forgotten Pearl Harbor and The Alamo. Everyone needs to understand that you can't play with terrorists. They must all be punished!

The adage "that time brings about a change." That definitely can attest on today. The attack on Pearl Harbor back on 07 December 1941 is a testament to what I'm saying about cowardly attacks on American soil. It would be obvious to say, that the United States would have learned from that "day of infamy" some almost (74) years ago. There was a warning shot fired during the bombing of the basement parking area of the "World Trade Center" back in 1993. But that wasn't looked at with "red flag" indications. Therefore, "it was business as usual" with no regards to another possible terrorist attack on American soil. Now, Americans are paying respect to the 2, 933 souls that were lost during the attack on the "World Trade Center," the "Pentagon," and the potential takeover of an airplane in Shanksville, Pennsylvania that by the quick thinking of the passengers onboard, avoided a direct hit on the "White House." Those are the true "American Heroes" that did what they had to without giving the terrorists onboard the upper hand in their planning.

Amen. If we wern't pushing Jesus/God out of our country but were living life according to scripture then we would have no hate, war, killing etc. What we would have is a country standing together with love to battle our wars.

911 was set up by the BUSH administration. Why are people so gullible. Bush and Cheney should be in prison or hung for this atrocity. Get a clue people.
