As an American there are many things that make my heart soar. From hearing the National anthem sang at a sporting event, to watching fireworks light up the night on Independence Day, and seeing Ole' Glory Fly. But now we have yet another source of pride, One World Trade Center. This landmark is a constant reminder that no one can come to our home and destroy what we are. They might have knocked us back, taken our breath away for a moment, but they did not break us. Americans will always stand up and fight back, be proud of that America. "Land of the free, because of the brave."
One World Trade Center stands as a sign of America post 9/11 by creating something amazing out of a tradegy, its taken a long time to rebuild and regain the land where World Trade Center once stood. People take pride in a lasting memory of something with such a tradegy
Not only did thousands of innocent people die on Sepember 11, 2001, thousands of people died trying to rescue and aid innocent people. The site of the worst loss of life on U.S. soil will forever stand as a sign of American pride, community and resiliency. The new building further exemplifies these values.
The actions that occurred on 9/11 will never be forgotten. Everyone in the U.S. was affected either directly or indirectly. In the post-9/11 era it is important that a symbol stands to let terrorists know that we are strong and we are not afraid. Having the One World Trade Center does exactly that.
