Never Forget, 9-11-01... Twin towers and statue of liberty...gone but never forgotten...The World Trade Center, NYC..I never got to visit them, but a book about a little girl who ate at Windows on the World restaurant helped urge on a lifelong fascination with and love for New York City.
Petronas Towers - twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. According to the CTBUH's official definition and ranking, they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101, but remain the tallest twin buildings ever built, surpassing the World Trade Center. The building is the landmark of Kuala Lumpur with nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower.
this is the image i have chosen for my 9/11 assignment. i have chosen this image because it shows the twin towers before they were struck down. Lady liberty looks like she is watching over the towers and all of new york. This imagery can be seen as a mother (the statue of liberty) mourning her loss. I thought that this picture was very interesting and can be seen in many different ways.
September 11 was a series of attacks by al-Qaeda ~ Four planes were hijacked to be flown into buildings. Two crashed into the World Trade Center in NYC, a third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in VA, and the fourth plane crashed near Shanksville, PA after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. The attacks claimed the lives of 2,996 people. It was the deadliest incident for firefighters and policemen in the history of the US, with 343 killed, 73 injured.
