New Towers at Ground Zero

Designs Unveiled for Freedom Tower’s Neighbors

A rendering of the skyline after construction of the towers at ground zero is complete.

The developer of the new World Trade Center unveiled the designs this morning for three skyscrapers at ground zero, which in their gargantuan scale would reshape the New York skyline.

 

 

 

The designs offered the most comprehensive picture to date of what the finished complex might — just might — look like six years from now. Above, the Freedom Tower is to the left of Towers 2, 3 and 4. Read more here.

I’m delighted to be an American. Knock us down, and with new fire in our eyes, we scramble upright. Snatch our liberties, and with single vision we rise, undamaged freedom dangling from our hands. Try intimidation, and the eagle within us screams and soars in majestic power and final triumph. Demolish our buildings, and from the rubble will rise the finer, the taller, most magnificent and most glorious. Attempt the annihilation of our faith, and with yet firmer resolve, we elevate God’s Word, and with passion we humble ourselves and seek His face.

God Bless America.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
