We Were There - 9/11 Memorial

September 11th, 2001 is a day that lives in infamy in the heart of all Americans. For many of us, it marked the beginning of the prevalence of terrorism. There are basically two reactions that are important. First, the United States has officially named September 11th Patriot Day. It has become a national holiday where citizens celebrate their patriotism and love for this nation. In this way, terrorism does not prevail. We do not allow this day to remain in the clutches of evil. It will be a day of American pride.

The second reaction to 9/11 is that we need to remember what happened on that day. As one historian pointed out, those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. It is also important to remember the lives of innocent people that were lost on that horrible day. Friends, brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers were snatched out of their loving families arms forever. They were people much like everyone else, struggling with fights, paying the bills, thinking about sports and their favorite television show. Then they were murdered. That is why the 9/11 Memorial makes a point to hold on to their memory. They feature people who were there every Tuesday to recount the horrible events from the perspective of an eye-witness.

The Titanasour - The Museum of Natural History

What were the earth's conditions years ago? What did prehistoric man eat and drink? Did he have any conception of letters? What did he know? In our age of information, we are becoming more educated about our past and about the stages of life that the earth has maneuvered through. People have a thirst for knowledge. They want to know what has happened in the world. They want to know the fine details of life. Science is quickly becoming more popular. People want to know about the mysteries of the deep cosmos. They want to unravel mysteries that nobody has ever unraveled. They want to understand the laws of physics and the organisms that traversed the earth long ago.

Many of us have been compelled by these creatures known as the dinosaurs. These massive reptiles who roamed the earth, millions of years before modern man, have always captured our interests. That is why the Museum of Natural History in New York City has a display of the ancient Titanosaur. Before the American Revolution, the discovery of the Americas, before the Native Americans migrated to the Americas, before the books of the Bible were written, before man knew how to use tools, this Titanosaur roamed the earth.

Bugging Out

The United States has always been built upon the spirit of industry and innovation. People who have a great idea and know how to put it into action have always had a home in western culture. There has been a lot of progress. Scientists have built upon generations of success and failure. That is why it is said that we stand upon the shoulders of giants. The laymen of today knows even more than the scholar of yesterday because of all of the advancements that have been made. Anybody who has lived through the 1980s until today knows how impressive the technological change has been. This is captured at the New York Hall of Science. They offer an opportunity to work with some of the best technology of the day. These are devices many people will not have the opportunity to use for years.
