9/11 Memorial

The 9/11 memorial was truly a remarkable experience for me. Although they weren’t completed yet, the buildings were beautiful. There were so many things about the memorial that were probably meant to be symbolic. The Freedom Tower is going to be 1776 feet high, because America got its independence in the year 1776. Its going to be even taller than the original towers, which seems to tell the rest of the world that although 9/11 is a huge tragedy, America has risen above it and the country has even grown as a result of it. The fountains were very interesting to me as well. They seemed like big hole in the ground, and they looked kind of like a grave. It’s as if they are grave markers for all of the people who died on 9/11, especially because they are located in the exact same spot that the original towers stood. We weren’t able to see the bottom of the fountains, and it looked as if they continued on into the ground beneath us, which was kind of creepy. Anyways, the memorial was beautiful and it was a great experience to be able to see it first hand.
