The Slow Bureaucratic Pace of “Freedom”

September 11th, 2001. The new year just started, 2010. It’s been over 8 years since that date. In that time the U.S.S. New York was commissioned on November 7th, 2009. The New York was built using 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center.




The Golden Gate Bridge opened in 1937 and took men using construction tools of the time, just over 4 years to build.



The twin towers at the World Trade Center took around 5 years to build both buildings.

Yet somehow over 8 years have gone by since the attacks on September 11th, and we have nothing to show for it except for a hole at ground zero.




The planned, and inappropriately named, freedom tower won’t be open in time for the 10 year anniversary of the terror attacks in 2011.
