  • I've had the privilege of watching the new WTC rise in the skies over NYC for the last year while building a new boiler at a refinery in NJ. It was an amazing thing to witness. RIP to all who were lost on 9/11, and my best wishes to those who are still fighting illnesses from their rescue efforts.

  • When are they expecting to be done?
    (Eventhough I'm from Denmark and saw the whole thing happen on live tv, from just moments before the second plane hit the other tower.. I pay my thoughts and deepest respect for all who died(except ofc the hijackers), lost someone of their beloved and the heros at Flight 93. - RIP)

  • The spotlights are to show the towers that fell, however...
    There are only two spotlights, yet three buildings fell.

    If you ask people on the street, the majority only seem to know that 2 buildings came down.

    Isn't that odd?

    • @newton
      It's not so odd if you realize that within the frame of the happenings that day, building 7 was a minor event, it happened in the shade. The attention of the media is guided well and blind patriotism and hate do the rest. A little fire seems a legit reason for a solid building to collapse...to the ignorant. Some proper 3d animations are made to secure the story, just as they secured Colin Powells lies in the UN presentation. In fact it's not so difficult to construct a false story when More..

  • Ive watched alot of programs lately about this. Its still hard to believe. The horror the people must've felt. The sorrow from the ones that lost their loved ones as they watch on tv how the towers collapse, knowing the people they loved where inside. RIP and never forget!

  • if you want to honor wtc, you remove islam from united states first.

    as long as islam exists, evil will continue to exist.

    • @Muhammad_ibn_Abdullah I think Islam is more a symptom than a cause. Can we just remove the underlying crazy people?

    • @Muhammad_ibn_Abdullah Religious extremism of any form is a threat to mankind. I see it in Israel with their Orthodox community. I see in the United States with the Christian Right. I see it in Africa with people little girls being mutilated and people being killed for being witches.

      Don't fool yourself, every religion has groups with the sole intention of making everyone else believe what they believe. It's up to the sane people to ensure we aren't overtaken by zealots who believe everything More..

  • Personally I think they should have rebuilt the WTC brick for brick...that would have been the best statement

    Also it was a special building; the materials they used are very 60's/70's and looked great...I'm afraid the glass thing they're building looks very generic and can be seen from Dubai to Hong Kong to Singapore amongs the thousands of sky scrapers going up these days...won't do justice to the original

  • They should have built two towers again and made them the biggest in the world. That would have been a message worth sending to anyone who wants to fuck with america you will make us bigger and stronger.

  • This video will produce many "tinfoil wearing nutjobs" and also "idiot debunkers"..today and this video should not be about whodunit or why, it's about the people..the emergency crews, the hospital staffs, the citizens and most of all, those who sacrificed the ultimate price, their lives

    I have my own views on 9/11..today is about them..RIP..never forget

    • ---American logic 101---

      <><><> Item 1. <><><>
      Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

      - Around 240000 killed due to the bombing and its effects (radiation sickness, burns, injuries.)

      - Initiated (even as Japan was planning to surrender to America) just as a test of Americas power.

      - Japan recovers from its trauma and becomes one of the most prosperous superpowers in the world.

    • @thefuckKING actually, we were going to continue dropping atom bombs on japan because they were never intending to surrender (pretty much ever, because of honor). the guy in charge of japan called for surrender and the 3rd bombing was called off. they are prosperous because we paid to rebuild them. 9/11 was a result of countless decades of sandniggers inbreeding with 1st cousins causing retards to reign in the middle east. if you dont want to remember what happened with a bit of dignity, then sh More..

  • Cool buildings. I still prefer the old ones though. Love the two rays of light idea though. Sorta ghostly but a nice way to mark the very spot. That is correct isn't it? That is the very spot?
