It has been 17 years since the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Time has flown. Most of today’s college undergrads have little or no memory of that day – and of course, younger people weren’t even born yet.
If you have occasion to be in New York City, I urge you to visit the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. It’s quite sobering and brings back the horror of that day – and the weeks following – but is well worth seeing.
Just this past Saturday, the Cortlandt Street subway station, severely damaged when the twin towers and surrounding World Trade Center buildings fell, finally reopened. Now named the WTC Cortlandt station, you’ll find a marble mosaic featuring the Declaration of Independence decorating its walls.
