IT‘S NOT TOO LATE TO DO THE RIGHT THING — AND DO THE THING RIGHT

Last year we announced our belief that it is not too late to do the right thing. In fact, we have come to believe that up until now it has actually been too early to make the World Trade Center all that it can and should be. A comprehensive proposal will follow. In the meantime, we want to repeat what is posted on the Petition page:

The words of our petition ring as true now as they did in 2006. And the thousands of comments that have been left since we first posted it are just a glimpse into how much people have always cared about rebuilding the World Trade Center in a way that would honor the will of the people and the price this country – and the world – paid on 9/11.

Now, even though a third tower has joined the [first two], the WTC skyline doesn't come close to the awe-inspiring vision of the two towers we lost. We trust that time will take care of rebuilding the Twin Towers. From their inception, they were dedicated to world peace and cooperation in ways that no other commercial structure ever was. And, they came to represent the aspirations of millions of people as no other towers ever could. They should not have been abandoned.

We have faith that one day the people of this country and the world will recognize the Twin Towers' powerful significance and demand they be restored to the world's skyline. We thank each one who adds his or her name and comment to the petition below for moving our world one step closer to that transcendent day.
