Never Forget

Sept 11 is a day that will always invoke a slew of emotions for me. Anger, patriotism, fear, anger, hurt, anger, sadness, anger and anger are a few.
That day forever changed our county. Some of those changes were good, some bad. Either way, we cannot go back...only forward.

One World Trade Center (also known as One WTC, 1 World Trade Center, 1 WTC, or Freedom Tower[note 1]) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. One WTC is the tallest building in the United States, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The supertall structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east.

You can knock us down, but we will get up again! The new Freedom Tower from a different angle:

My Brother was asked to be the engineer for the new WTC, and he was there until he retired. He said that it is quite the building. He was in Paris on 09/11/2001, and it took him 27 hours to get home, via Delta through Atlanta. He got the flight from Paris on Friday, as his original scheduled flight was to be the following Wednesday. He lost many friends, as they were in meetings in the building. They lost 10% of the field engineers that day. The Liberty Mutual engineers were in a meeting, when the plane struck the tower. Some had been in the building during the 1993 truck explosion in the garage, and when they felt the building shake, they got up, and left the meeting. The director of the meeting asked them where they were going, and the reply was, "We're leaving." They were the only ones to survive that particular meeting.
