We’re remembering and reflecting today.
We may be taking a work-related trip to New York next month, and if so, we definitely want to make time to visit the National September 11 Memorial while we’re there.
The Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed 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 the 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.
