The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit in the foundations where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools.
