Wednesday marks the 12th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001. The new 9/11 Memorial Museum at Ground Zero will honor the memories of those lost by ensuring the world never forgets. Alice Greenwald, the museum’s director, said the museum will achieve its mission “by telling the story of what happened at the place that it happened.”
The press is currently able to preview the museum, which will be open to the public in the next eight months.
Greenwald told Jansing & Co. on Monday morning that while human beings are capable of horrendous acts, the way in which people responded on 9/11 remains a testament to humanity’s capacity for good. She said the aspiration of the museum is “to be cognizant of the fact that we live in a completely interdependent world and it’s up to us to create the kind of world we want to leave our children and grandchildren.”
