Photo: World Trade Center Memorial

The granite memorial fountain honoring the victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The fountain was destroyed in the September 11, 2001, attacks along with the rest of the World Trade Center. A recovered fragment of the fountain is preserved in an interim memorial and will become part of the permanent collection of the new National September 11 Memorial & Museum honoring victims of both the 1993 and 2001 attacks.

    I am happy to see that thismemorial to lost lives is finally coming into existence
    I hope it gives comfort to those families who lost loved ones as have no doubt the churches, synagogues, etc given to the families for the last 9 years.
    That said the Islamic culture center ( with prayer space for multiple faiths and a mosque) 2 blocks from the ground zero is no justification on ” sensitivity” grounds for ignoring the constitutions 1st Amendment.
    This is especially true when
    a) The original trade center building itself had a multi religion and muslim prayer space .
    b) The Greek orthodox church will be re-built at ground zero,not a whisper against this at all.
