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!
