Did you know the names on the 9/11 Memorial have a special arrangement? The names are grouped by the locations and circumstances in which victims found themselves during the attacks. The North Pool parapets include the names of those who were killed at the North Tower, on hijacked Flight 11, and in the 1993 bombing. The South Pool parapets include the names of first responders as well as victims who were killed at the South Tower, on hijacked Flight 175, at the Pentagon, on hijacked Flight 77, and on hijacked Flight 93. Within these groupings, names are arranged in a system of “meaningful adjacencies.” Friends and colleagues appear together, as well as the crews of each of the four flights and first responder agencies and units. https://911memorial.io/3tldx7W

These stairs helped hundreds escape on 9/11. Known as the Survivors’ Stairs, they withstood the collapse of the towers on 9/11. The stairs were slated for destruction until a federal review process involving preservationists, survivors and other advocates eventually assured that this symbolic remnant can now be seen inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum. https://911memorial.io/3s9d47q

This leather fire helmet belonging to Michael T. Weinberg was recovered at Ground Zero and donated to the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s collection by his family. Personal items like Michael’s helmet help to share his story, not just of how he died, but how he lived.

Jennifer Majtan and Team QUACK

The stories of our Run/Walk community members always inspire us, like Jennifer Majtan and Team QUACK. On 9/11, Jennifer tried but couldn’t reach her uncle Christopher Quackenbush. He was one of 66 employees at his company who never made it out of the South Tower. Jennifer’s story inspires us, and we hope it inspires you to sign up for the Run/Walk happening on April 25. Help us reach our goal of 20,000 miles in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. runwalk.911memorial.org

Before construction of the Twin Towers had been completed, the world’s tallest buildings were dedicated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on this day in 1973. This stainless steel pedestal was installed on the World Trade Center Plaza to commemorate the occasion. The pedestal was found in the rubble at Ground Zero and now can be seen on view at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. https://911memorial.io/2Pidv1X

In our collection, we feature personal property like badges, pins, patches, and identification cards. They share insight into who the person was and the story they left behind. These wings belong to Betty Ong. She was working as a flight attendant on board American Airlines Flight 11 on Sept. 11, 2001. Minutes after the flight was hijacked, Betty used an Air-fone to place a call to American Airlines ground personnel. She remained on the phone for about 25 minutes, relaying information about the hijackers’ actions until they intentionally crashed the Boeing 767 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. http://911memorial.io/3c9YozU

To all the hard working people at the museum, thank you for my flag. It brought tears to my eyes when I held it in my hands. I was 12 years old when 9/11 happened and I will never forget. Thank you so much

Firefighter Michael Clarke's birthday was yesterday & his brother's is today. Is there photo of flower on his name I can share with his brother, please?
If you believe that Covid-19 came from a bat or a fish market. Then you must still believe that there are WMDs in Iraq. This virus was man-made by the government testing germ warfare. They carelessly let it escaped into the air or did they just release it to see how well it would work? Testing it on their enemy China, not realizing it would affect the world. People fear that the world will be destroyed by an Atomic Bomb, but it is more likely be a man-made virus that will do us all in.
⛩ Apesar do ataque terrorista do 11 de setembro ., continuarmos lutando incansavelmente contra atos de terrorismo no MUNDO todo,, preservamos o mundo intacto para às próximas GERAÇÕES ,, apoie à preservação e., proteção da NATUREZA para Respirarmos AR PURO e, à evolução de novos projetos para o FUTURO. *^ [ o AMANHÃ HOJE sempre e ETERNAMENTE .*^🚩🏁🇧🇷 ]
