Thirteen years ago today, the United States’ security and safety was shattered when terrorists used commercial airliners to attack the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and an airliner crashed in Pennsylvania.
CBS report news about the memorial day in US. New York City and the world will remember the victims of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, this coming Thursday.
As CBS 2’s Mary Calvi reported, the 9/11 Museum has now added new voices to its memorial to the solemn day. For the first time, ordinary New Yorkers are being seen and heard as part of the museum.
“My skyline that I had known my entire life would never look the same,” said one man in a U.S. Army uniform. “I felt powerless.”
“I just remember how it was before 9/11, and how much I took for granted,” a woman said.
For the museum, there is not just one story of 9-11, but thousands. And any visitor can go into a small studio and record their feelings, and answer certain questions.
They can talk about how their lives were affected by 9/11, and how their views have changed since that day.
