As we come upon the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, it would be hard to miss what's growing up to the sky downtown. This will be known as One World Trade Center (not Freedom Tower, as it was previously referred to).
As Wikipedia tells me, at the time of its completion in 2013, One World Trade Center will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and the third-tallest building in the world by pinnacle height, with its spire reaching a symbolic 1,776 feet (541.3 m) in reference to the year of American independence.
Already, it's the tallest building in New York City, since April 30, 2012.
So much has been said and written about 9/11 that it's just not possible for me to add more. So I will remain silent, alone in my still vivid memories of that day and in thought of the tragedy's victims and the people close to them.
