Ground Zero Museum Controversy - My9 New Jersey

Ground Zero Museum Controversy

Posted: Updated:

It has been twelve years since the devastation of September 11th and while this is a day of loss and tragedy that most people will never forget, controversy has now arose regarding the construction of a museum at Ground Zero to honor the victims of that day.

The museum includes real artifacts, such as the real steel beams that were hit by Flight 11, the “Survivor Staircase” which is known for having saved many lives, as well as beams that have crosses cut out that were done by first responders.

The controversy of this museum being built is that many people find this to be too soon and think it might have people relive the memories of 9/11.

Deportee Fire Chief Roy James from Princeton NJ and firefighter from Monmouth Junction, Bryan Winsor were both first responders and attended the opening of the memorial.

“History cannot be edited. There are certain things in history that are going to offend someone. In order to stop history from repeating itself, you have to learn and remember history” Deportee Fire Chief James said.

September 11th, 2001 is a day that replays in New Yorker’s minds and the memorial hopes to help to honor those people lost and their memories. The museum is said to be open in 2014.
