911 Memorial Opens in New York
NEW YORK – The bright sunny morning of September 11 2001 was shattered by attacks on the World Trade Centre, the Pentagon, and the crash of a hi-jacked aircraft into a Pennsylvania field.
This week, the 911 Memorial has opened in New York.
Micheal R. Bloomberg states, “The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, brought loss and grief on a scale we had never known. But in the dark days that followed, the indomitable spirit of our city and nation shined more brightly than ever, as stories of heroism and sacrifice inspired us all. And together, we made a solemn vow: that we would never forget those we lost and that we would forever share their stories with the world.
That is why we built the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The Memorial & Museum provide a place of reflection and remembrance. They are designed to help those who were most affected by the attacks to heal – and those with no memory of the attacks to understand losses that will forever be incomprehensible.
