African Women’s Entrepreneurship Programme: A visit to the 9/11 Memorial in New York
It was a rainy day in New York but since we had a bit of time inbetween events, a few paticipitants and I decided to visit the twin towers were so many American lost their lives. The National September 11 Memorial honors the men, women and children who perished in the terrorist attacks of Sept 11 2001 and 26 Feb,1993. It commemorates the lives lost,recognizes the thousands who survived and allows visitors to come together in the spirit of unity that emerged in the wake of 9/11. The 9/11 attacks killed 2,977 people from more than 90 nations. The oldest victim was 85 yrs old,the youngest was two. More than 400 were first responders who died performing their sworn duties.
May the lives remembered,the deeds recognized recognized,and the spirits reawakened be eternal beacons which reaffirm respect for life,strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom and inspire an end to hatred,ignorance and intolerance.........
