This is the Reflecting Pools ,where the twin towers stood, before the attacks on America. Ted and I looked upon these monuments to the people whose lives were taken on 9/11. It was so tranquil for us. I remember standing in my living room that day, because I was frozen in place, and screaming as the towers went down. All those lives.2,977 from 90 nations.The oldest was 85 years old and the youngest was two. More than 400 were first responders , who died doing their duties.
When the WTC is redeveloped ,it will include the Memorial , a museum, and commercial office space, and connections to public transit. This building is being call Freedom Tower,it is just beyond the north pool. It is to be 1,776 feet , making it the tallest building in the United States.This is information we received while in NYC. Today let's take a moment to actually remember all those who lost their lives on 9/11.
