    Do they honestly believe just because OBL was allegedly killed a year ago, and reinforcing this building is going to bring closure to everyone who has suffered losses due to 9/ll?

      Hey, TS.
      I don't think it is so much about closure as it is about rebirth.

    Hello everyone. I'm glad to see that they are working so hard on the new trade center. It will never replace the lives we lost but it a standing monument to the people who gave their lives. Not a lot of people look at it like that but it's the only to really look at it. I know that it's hard for some people to see the good and positive thing that rebuilding there is but it shows that as a country we are not weak and that we will stand strong together.
