September 11th Memorial - Never Forget

9/11 Memorial
BAY CITY, Mich.-  Today we take a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives in the September 11th attacks in 2001.  Graff Chevrolet Bay City sends our most heartfelt thoughts to those who were affected, we will never forget.  We want to thank those who fight for our freedom each and every day!

Completed just one year ago on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, the 9/11 Memorial in New York City features twin reflecting pools that house North America's largest man made waterfalls. The pools sit where the twin towers once stood and serve as a national tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.  Each memorial pool is nearly an acre in size, surrounded by lush green trees.  Inscribed along the bronze panels that edge the memorial pools are the names of each and every person who died in the attacks.  The September 11th Memorial in serves as powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.

9/11 MemorialThe creators of the 9/11 National Memorial, architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker, were chosen to create the September 11th Memorial from a global design competition that attracted 5,200 entries from 63 nations!
