I’ve heard so much in the news lately (especially from our leaders) that the new Freedom Tower represents the resilience of the American people.
I wholeheartedly disagree …
Evidently, I’m not the only one who disagrees either.
Donald Trump is actively campaigning to get the WTC towers rebuilt . . . one story taller.
Gena Gorlin has written a very interesting article about the WTC and human beings reliance on symbolism. She says, "Libeskind proposes that we build a carcass; an empty pretense that is
all words and abstractions, but no substance. If that is the nature of
America?s self-image today, then the worst cynics among us are right?we
are doomed, defeated, done for; the terrorists have won."
If we really wanted to show the rest of the world that we were a resilient and brave people, we’d rebuild the Towers.
