9/11 Museum and Memorial Pools

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked four planes after they took their departure from Boston, Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. and Newark International Airport in New Jersey.

Upon arriving at the 9/11 Museum, there is a Memorial pool that commemorates those who lost their lives in the attack. The stream of water creates a serene silence that leaves people still as they reflect on this disastrous event. 

To honor each name of the men, women and children who lost their lives during the attack, staff members place roses on each name when their birthday occurs. With over 3,000 names surrounding both the North and South pools, the austerity of the attack was made more real.

At the end of the 9/11 Memorial pools is the Museum that showcases the remains of the Twin Towers, expands on the thought behind the attacks, and tells the story of the lost lives. 

Footage of President George Bush, Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Governor George Pataki sharing stories during this tragic day were presented. The Museum also displays photos and videos from the day of and the following days after the attack. 

During a week-long visit to New York City to attend the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s 100th annual convention, The Feather staff visited the memorial to remember the catastrophic event and the lives that were lost that day.
