In Rememberance….

September 11, 2011

Today, September 11, 2011, marks the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks.  People all across the United States are reflecting and remembering the lives of those who were lost. 

Today, the city is also opening the National 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero.  This memorial consists of a street-level plaza that has been described as one of the most eco-friendly plazas ever constructed. 

The plaza has irrigation, stormwater and pest management systems that conserve energy and water.  Swamp white trees were also planted all around the plaza.  To support the trees, a suspended paving system was used that sits on top of troughs filled with nutrient-rich soil for the trees roots.  Collected rainwater will be used to water the trees.

Today, on the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2011, Maid Brigade remembers those who lost their lives,

…those who lost loved ones, family and friends
…those heroes who gave their lives and those that helped
…and our heroes who continue to defend our freedoms.
