Today marks the 19th anniversary of the atrocious terrorist attacks on the world trade centre & the pentagon. I will never forget where I was on that day and I am sure many of my blog readers wont forget either, It’s amazing to think next year will mark 20 years of this tragic event, so much has happened and changed in my life over this time and while COVID-19 is playing havoc with the world today, just think back and remember we have so much to be thankful for in comparison to events that happened in New York City on September the 11th 2001.
The “Tribute in Light” memorial is in remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001, in honor of the citizens who lost their lives in the World Trade Center attacks. The two towers of light are composed of two banks of high wattage spotlights that point straight up from a lot next to Ground Zero. The ÒTribute in LightÓ memorial was first held in March 2002. This photo was taken from Liberty State Park, New Jersey on September11, 2006, the five year anniversary of 9/11. USAF photo by Denise Gould.
2,996 people died in this sickening event and many more have passed away since caused by injuries sustained by the collapse of the World Trade Centre & the attacks on the Pentagon, I personally didn’t know anybody that was lost that day however, I would like to wish my deepest condolences to all souls that have passed away to be in a better place now & I will never forget!
Clean up of the World Trade Centre site was completed in May 2002 over 18 months after the towers came down, and the Pentagon was repaired within a year. On November 18, 2006, construction of One World Trade Centre began at the World Trade Centre site. The building was officially opened on November 3, 2014.
