9/11 Tribute in Light Update


Today's NY Post has an article on a travelling 9/11 World Trade Center exhibit designed to raise national support for the Memorial. According to the article:

A tour slated for 16 cities attracted thousands in its first two stops over the weekend, in Columbia, S.C., and Raleigh, N.C., where people lined up to sign a steel beam to be part of the memorial.
And:
Fund-raising has topped $300 million, with a goal of $350 million for construction by September 2009.
To my mind the Tribute in Light continues to be the most moving and appropriate Memorial to that day. There is a poll on this topic in the column on the right below the Statement of Purpose. Image is from USA Today.
