The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a nonprofit organization located at the World Trade Center in New York City, bears solemn witness to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The organization honors the 2,983 victims of these attacks, those who risked their lives to save others and all who demonstrated extraordinary compassion in the aftermath through commemoration, exhibitions and educational programs that tell the story of the attacks and explore the continuing global impact of 9/11 and the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities.

The 9/11 Memorial remembers and honors the 2,983 people who were killed in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The design, created by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, consists of two reflecting pools formed in the footprints of the original Twin Towers and a plaza of trees. The 9/11 Memorial Museum displays monumental artifacts linked to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath.

Juliana Valentine McCourt lived in Connecticut with her parents. Juliana’s family said that the four year old had a great sense of humor and was nurturing, like her mother. On 9/11, Juliana and her mom, Ruth, boarded Flight 175 for a trip to Disneyland. There, they were to meet up with Juliana’s godmother, Paige Farley-Hackel, who was on Flight 11. Today in honor of Juliana’s 23rd birthday a white rose was placed at her name on the 9/11 Memorial.

Brooklyn resident Cheryl Stewart placed this sign in her yard to count the days that Osama bin Laden remained at large after 9/11. By the morning of May 2, 2011, a passerby had taped a note to the sign to share the news. Late on the night of May 1, 2011, in a televised address, U.S. President Barack Obama announced the killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Stewart finally received the answer to the long-standing question posed on her sign. https://911memorial.io/3bUTcxt

“Trying to Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning” is comprised of 2,983 individual watercolor squares—each representing a victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks. Many remember the beauty of the clear blue sky on the morning of 9/11. But, our perception of the color might not be the same as that of another person. Just like our perception of color, our memories share a common point of reference. https://911memorial.io/3eYIXKv

In the weeks following Sept. 11, 2001, crowds gathered on Manhattan’s West Side Highway to cheer, applaud, and wave homemade signs to the thousands of rescue and recovery workers traveling to the site. As New Yorkers stand nightly at their front doors, stoops, windows, balconies, and roofs, to applaud the healthcare workers, grocery store staff, restaurant employees, delivery people, and sanitation workers who make the sacrifice to keep us safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we see each home become a miniature Point Thank You. https://911memorial.io/2yiyrgd

Ladder 3 bravely responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11. The truck was severely damaged from the collapse of the Twin Towers, and the Company lost all 11 members on board. In July 2011, the fire truck was ceremoniously placed inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum. One of the largest artifacts in the Museum, it was lowered into the space through a temporary hole to its final home.

Commemoration Continues During Temporary Closure

Each day, we recognize the birthdays of the men, women, and children whose names are inscribed on the 9/11 Memorial by placing a single white rose at each person’s name on his or her birthday. This simple and powerful gesture began in 2013 after a volunteer suggested this tribute to remember the loss of human life on Sept. 11, 2001 and Feb. 26, 1993 and continues without pause during this temporary closure. https://911memorial.io/3axwyKV

Mission to Remember: Conserving Objects

From handwritten notes on scraps of paper to massive beams of World Trade Center steel, each item in the Museum's collection has a unique story to contribute to the narrative of 9/11. Our conservators face the challenge of preserving significantly damaged objects whose meaning is often found in the damage itself. www.911memorial.org/explore

It is our mission and commitment to honor the lives of the 2,983 killed in the horrific attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and Feb. 26, 1993. While our site may be temporarily closed, we continue to honor victim’s birthdays by placing white roses at their names on the 9/11 Memorial.

I listened to this on the New York Times THE DAILY PODCAST and i will admit it broke me, we were sposed to be visiting NYC in August for the 6th time but now we have cancelled to be on the safe side but we WILL be back in 2021 !!!!! the following is the transcript from the podcast and i had to share it with you all. My name is Roger Cohen. I’ve worked for The New York Times for just over 30 years and was a foreign correspondent for much of that time, foreign editor. And now I’m a columnist. Which means I write opinion pieces for the paper. People might think I don’t sound like a New Yorker. But I feel in spirit, and in the intensity of my feelings for the city and my identification with it, very much a New Yorker. Yes. So I’d been living with this ghostly New York. And I would lie awake sometimes at night and hear distant sirens and occasionally a chopper overhead, and birdsong in the morning and again the sirens, asking myself: When, when will New York come back? It’s a city of energy. Energy defines New York. And how will that energy reconstitute itself? What about the tourists? What about the restaurants, the bars, the museums? Broadway, businesses — everything. So I was just going for long walks at the end of the day. And I’d been on this long walk out to Brooklyn naval yards and beyond. And as I was coming back, it was dusk and there was nobody around, and there were these pieces of plastic and cans skittering across Front Street. And I saw a rat. You know, it’s not a rare sight in New York, but the rat was just kind of ambling around. And because there was nobody else around, this just set off a kind of apocalyptic vision of the city taken over by vermin. It was a day or two after that, that that I woke up with this line in my head, and I started writing: I forgive you, New York. I forgive you your snarl, your aggression, your hustle and hassle. I forgive you LaGuardia and your summer stench of uncollected garbage. I forgive you no cabs in the rain. I forgive you the crusty, deceptive puddles of slush at curbside. I even forgive you the Mets and no place to park and delivery trucks in the bike lane. All is forgiven if you will only return: the subway soliloquies of the homeless, the trains that never come, the trains that stop in the middle of the tunnel, the traffic, the garbage trucks blocking cross streets, the jackhammering of construction, the hiss of smoke from a manhole cover, the idling stretch-limo S.U.V.s, the drone of a million air-conditioning units, the drivers leaning on horns, the city hum that never ceases, until it did. I forgive you. I forgive you now and forever. How could I ever begrudge you your restlessness, your relentlessness, your lip, your effrontery, your appraising glance, your pushiness, your impatience, your disregard for social niceties, when I knew all along that your great secret was that an extreme degree of ambition coexists in your streets with the empathy every New Yorker feels for a fellow New Yorker? Only come back and all is pardoned: the tourists meandering in the theater district, your roads pitted with potholes, your crazy prices, your dinner parties ending at 9:30 because tomorrow is another New York day and theres money to be made, your awful basketball, your restaurants that have a table maybe in a couple of months, your overcrowded sidewalks, your iPhone addicts gathered at the exit of a subway station, your way of never ever relenting until you turn every one of your workers into a zombie by nightfall. I forgive you the rats yes, even the rats and Ill throw in the roaches. The swelter of August, forgiven. The icy winter winds off the Hudson and the East River, forgiven. The impossibility of getting across town, forgiven. I forgive you the crowds, the craziness, the cruelty, the cursing, the complaining customers, the impatient merchants and the most uncomfortable cabs in the world. I forgive you your kale salads, your restaurants that sell only oatmeal, your trends. I forgive you your street preachers, your sanctimonious parents who drone on about their childrens schools. I forgive you Macys during the Christmas season and Times Square always. I forgive you your ticket-holder lines, your throngs blocking out the paintings at MoMA, your rush-hour subways crammed with humanity. I forgive you the holding of subway doors, your drunks peeing and puking on the street. I forgive you Penn Station. I forgive you the Port Authority, yes, even that! I forgive you the brutal division of haves and have-nots. I forgive you the bus to the cabs at LaGuardia-in-construction and the recording that tries to persuade you that the bus is really great news. Look, I’ll pardon the madness of having AirTrain JFK start in Queens rather than Manhattan. I forgive you the whiff of urine on a Sunday morning, the broken glass in Central Park and the way you persuade people that saying I may have a window next month is OK behavior. I forgive you for driving me crazy at times, for making me want to scream, Get me out of here! I forgive you everything without exception if you will only promise to reappear. Please, do not be proud. I know, we cursed you with irresponsible abandon. Forgive us, as I forgive you. We did not imagine the silence that could fall, the sirens that would fill the night, the sick and the dying, the doctors laboring on the 10th circle of the inferno, the ghostliness of shuttered stores, the empty skies, the canceled events, the post-apocalypse latex gloves scattered here and there. We took you too much for granted. Yes, forgive us for not giving daily praise for the miracle of New York. I know I did not thank you enough for those clear winter mornings, for that dive I love on West 26th, for your tolerance, for your open arms, for the sun glinting on the Empire State Building, for your ampleness, for New York Noodletown, for your secrets slowly revealed, for your endlessness, for your boldness, for your churn, for the Met Cloisters, for your humanity, for your wit, for Coney Island, for the water towers, for the Staten Island Ferry being free, for banking over the city into LaGuardia or J.F.K. and seeing you and thinking this is home, for taking me in as no other city ever could. Being a New Yorker, I was in a hurry. I was forgetful. You get that. Please forgive me. Please forgive us all. Ill throw in the pigeons. Forgive you for every one of those awful birds. Just come back, just return, please. I know we can make a deal.
