Russian gift to the US

Russian gift to the US
I had never heard of this before receiving it.
Why didn’t the press report it?
This It is the “TEAR DROP”  made and installed by the Russians
to honor those who died in 9 11 and a statement against terrorism.

It is very impressive. The tear drop is lined up with the Statue of Liberty…
..it is an impressive memorial and statement against terrorism.
Gift from the people of Russia…….
“Monument to the struggle against world terrorism, artist Zurab Tesereteii”
The walkway is made of stones.

Names of the persons killed on 9 11 are inscribed on the base.
The base like the Vietnam Memorial wall.
It was a cold and windy day but well worth the drive to see.
It is down in the shipping yards across from “The Lady”.

  1. It is a shame that we haven’t heard more about this from the media.
    It would do all of us so much good to see that Russia feels the same way we do about terrorism.
    It would send a much needed message to the terrorists also.
