A Look At The Ground Zero Memorial

| Filed under: PolitikInspiration

With the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks coming up, the memorial site at ground zero ran a test on one of the reflecting pools.

The two pools, each in the footprint of a tower, are an acre in size and 50 feet deep. They're the largest man made waterfalls in America.

What a beautiful way to honor all those we lost.

The memorial officially opens on September 11th, 2011. See the above video for more details about the site.

    It really doesn't seem like 10 years have passed. The memorial looks lovely, but very sad - the direction is all downwards - I wonder if there will be an upwards part of the display as well.

    Im not being nasty but that has got to be one of the ugliest memorials i think i have ever seen. With all the money that went into it, they could of come up with something better than what amounts too a massive black pit of nothing.

    There's something about the sound of water that is very soothing and peaceful. I think the waterfalls are quite pretty.

    I cannot believe its almost been a decade since its happened.

    Time goes by so fast.

    PS.. these commercials before your videos are way to long and way too Annoying!I get what they are trying to do with the memorial… but I personally am not a fan… It seems boring, i think they missed the mark with this one.

    very nice…too bad it took the US 10 years to decide on what to do and build it….many needed something to go to for reflection years ago…Either way, glad it is there now…I like the waterfalls in the footprints of the towers…

    This mememorial looks and sounds beautiful without being grandiose. Perfectly appropriate. Must feel awesome and strange to be by it in person.

    Can't we move on. We don't celebrate any other bombings like this one.

    I think the water is relaxing and peaceful, and is exactly what should be on the site.
    It's still hard to think about that day.

    Re: sanfran1 – Well, they had the designs drawn up seven years ago. It's just that they had to cut through all the red tape bullshit and fought with some of the families on what to do with the space. That's the most irritating part of it.

    I have to agree, sadly.. it's one of the ugliest memorials I've ever seen. Honestly, is that the best we could do? With all the talent in the world.. that's what we decided on? Ugh (sorry)

    Really trying not to be disrespectful to those who lost loved ones - but that "memorial" is horrendous. Waterfalls? Really? I just see water puddles dropping into a hole. Everything going down, just like the buildings did. Maybe they couldn't think of anything to put in this spot that would say "sorry we killed your family for our own greed and power". If you still don't know it was an inside job, you need to do your homework - seriously. It's hard to admit your own country would do that, but it did. The cover-up wasn't even a good one! But, when you bury your head in the sand you'll grasp any explanation to bring it back out again.
