World Trade Center

The World Trade Center had an interesting history. It was the cause of many deaths. Obviously a lot of people died on September 11, but a lot of people were killed when the towers were being built. About eighty innocent, hardworking people died. They probably fell from a great height. Something else that I learned that I didn't expect was that a lot of people were against the World Trade Center. They thought it was unnecessary and was just another office building. After it was built, of course, everyone loved it and it meant a lot to the people of the United States.
Obviously, we can't visit the World Trade Center today; actually, we can't visit the original towers. It would be awesome if we could, though. They are building a new World Trade Center, but usually, the original is always the best. People should try to visit the new one, when it's finished, because the Twin Towers mean a lot to America. In my report, I learned that a couple people had amazing quotes. They mostly said that the World Trade Center symbolizes freedom. Isn't that what America's all about? Someday, I plan on visting them, and I hope a lot of other people will too.

  1. This is very informative! I didn't know that 80 people died when the World Trade Center was being built, or that people were against building it. I visited New York City at the beginning of September 2001, so right before 9/11. Although we didn't go to the World Trade Center, I have many pictures from my trip with the twin towers in the background. I also was in New York City in 2008 and had the chance to visit the site and see the memorials that are there next to the construction site. I think that the new towers will symbolize freedom even more than the previous ones did.
