Today, 9/11 is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. New Yorkers are rebuilding Ground Zero as a gleaming paean to optimism. Collectively, the new architecture there will stand for an entire nation’s response to the events of that fateful September morning. The power of symbolism is great; in this instance, let’s hope the architecture ultimately symbolizes our ability to move on. It’s important to remember what happened ten years ago (no one will forget) but also to awaken to a world that has irrevocably changed since then.
