Sad to say it, but I personally never even knew about this until recently. The reason for this is the same reason you have probably never heard about it either. The mainstream media had a complete black out of the story! The monument pictured, is a dedication to the 9/11 victims, their family members and the American people from the Russian people.
Ask yourself why would the mainstream media, or American leaders not want to share such a beautiful gesture with the American people? Not only is it a truly touching gift, but it also serves to break down a barrier that Russia is some how evil, which is a perspective that has dominated the minds of Americans ever since the cold war. America's original "war on terror", only it was called the "cold war" and lots of propaganda was used to scare the public and justify invading countries all over the world, just like today.
New York is arguably the most popular city in the world with millions and millions of visitors each years, yet no one seems to know about this remarkable monument even though it is HUGE, 100ft tall and 175-tons, which is about 2/3 the size of the statue of liberty!
The answer to this question though is pretty obvious if you think about it. Just like any psycopathic abuser, the U.S. government tells its victim (the American people) that even though it rapes and abuses us it is actually looking out for our best interests and all other governments are the bad guys. As the expression goes, "The greatest trick the enemy can play on its victim, is that everyone else except themselves are the enemy!"
As you can see, the monument is inscribed with the names of the victims.
The monument was the work of Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli. It is meant to represent "sadness and grief over the loss of life, but also hope for a future free from terror."
Keep up the great work mainstream media, everyone is ignorant dumbed down and clueless. Excellent job!
