The 9/11 Teardrop Memorial. It was a gift to America from the country of Russia and is dedicated "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism." It is in Manhattan, NY. Around the base of The Teardrop were the names of all those who died on 9/11 – including 26 Russians. Vladimir Putin was there when construction began and Bill Clinton attended the dedication ceremony in 2006. Since then, it has been forgotten.
