Today marks the 17th anniversary of the official end of the rescue, recovery and relief efforts at the World Trade Center site. We are happy to report that in honor of those who have suffered and or died from exposure to hazards and toxins in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum has completed their recent renovation of the Memorial Glade.
Within the Memorial Glade, a new pathway is now flanked by six large stone monoliths pointing skyward, each inlaid with World Trade Center steel. At either end of the path is the following inscription:
“This Memorial Glade is dedicated
To those whose actions in our time of need
Led to their injury, sickness, and death
Responders and recovery workers
Survivors and community members
Suffering long after September 11, 2001
From exposure to hazards and toxins
That hung heavy in the air
Here and beyond this site known as Ground Zero
And at the Pentagon
And near Shanksville, Pennsylvania
In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks.
Here we honor the tens of thousands
From across America and around the world
Who came to help and to heal
Whose selflessness and resolve
Perseverance and courage
Renewed the spirit of a grieving city
Gave hope to the nation
And inspired the world.”
We at Fall3nWarrior love the new addition to the Memorial Glade at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum site. We are proud to support such a great organization who is truly dedicated to preserving and educating the public on the events that took place surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and after. These awesome additions to the site are another reason why we continue to support and donate to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. With the support of our loyal customers, we can all make a difference and help everyone to always remember and never forget those lost and affected by the events that took place on September 11th, 2001.
