“The two sides also remain at odds over who will have oversight of the museum and the surrounding memorial.”
About this, I am not naive. These things cost money, and it is fine that the mayor and governor do some work to figure out how to pay the bills for this.
But they had better figure it out. Memories of that day will inevitably fade.
But that does not mean future generations must inevitably forget. They will, in fact, crave to learn about and remember that awful day, and all memorials, big or small, play a role in that.
As Americans, we deserve - we need – a grand museum and memorial in lower Manhattan. It’s also the least we can do for the widow, for the daughter, of people such as Commander Patrick Dunn.
