One World Trade Center- We are back! I only hope and pray that those who we lost and those who love them find some peace and comfort in this place...in rising from the ashes....in rebuilding a place that was loved as part of what were the simple, everyday joys of the day..reading the paper in the park nearby, finding comfort and strength in the churches nearby, peace and contentment in the shade of the trees, and strength of a determined country!
Rising from the ashes...the 9/11 Memorial Site and One World Trade Center. Ground Zero is being transformed into a permanent World Trade Center Memorial Site entitled 'Reflecting Absence', as well as a functional office and visitor building called the Freedom Tower.
