WTC Steel Awaits Local 9/11 Memorials; Stored with TLC at JFK

The New York Times has an article and a slide show on the artifacts from the World Trade Center attacks on September 11th, 2001, which have been carefully stored in a hangar at JFK International Airport in anticipation of the creation of local town memorials. Maybe Aberdeen should consider mounting a small memorial in the park at Broad and Main?

The "last column" was returned to the WTC site at the end of August in preparation for a museum being established there, according to the Times. These steel pieces are what is left for us to see and feel from that awful day. Most of us old enough to remember have the collapsing towers as a twisted fixture in our souls.
