Russian President Putin and Russia’s Gift to the USA: Their 9-11 Tear Drop Monument

tear drop 911By Catherine J. Frompovich

As the fifteenth anniversary of that awful, dreadful day of infamy, September 11, 2001, approaches, I could not help but be struck by a most moving gesture of solidarity and friendship from the Russians and their gift to the people of the USA, the Tear Drop Memorial to the Victims of the Tragedy of September 11, 2001 — something I’d not heard about, and am wondering how many other Americans also have not known about nor visited!

According to Wikipedia,

Groundbreaking was done on September 16, 2005, in a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin,[2] and was dedicated on September 11, 2006, in a ceremony attended by former U.S. President Clinton. [1]

Here is President Putin’s address that he made during the official Russian presentation of such a beautifully executed monument:

September 16. 2005
Bayonne, New Jersey
Speech at the Dedication Ceremony for the Memorial to the Victims of the Tragedy of September 11, 2001

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN: Dear Mayor, Ladies and Gentlemen.

First of all, I would like to thank you for the honour  [sic] you have shown me, my friends and my colleagues, in inviting us to be here today, here in this place. I would like to thank you for coming today. I would also like to thank the city [Bayonne, NJ] authorities for providing this wonderful site for the monument. Everyone entering the city will be able to see it.

We are here today to lay the cornerstone of a memorial dedicated to the victims of the September11 terrorist attacks in 2001. At that time, four years ago, the criminals thought they would plunge America and all civilised [sic] humanity into chaos. They were wrong. On the contrary, we became more united than ever and we created an actively functioning anti-terrorist coalition. I fully agree with you, Mr Mayor — just as we vanquished fascism, so shall we defeat terrorism together.

You know that Russia, like America, has been struck by terrorist attacks on a number of occasions. To be honest, I am not sure that we have done everything we could to immortalize [sic] the memory of the victims of these crimes.

Hundreds of my fellow citizens have lost their lives at the hands of criminals: in the bombings of apartment buildings in Moscow and other Russian cities, in attacks against infrastructure facilities and transport, and finally, in the terrible crime perpetrated at Beslan. [2]

I repeat, I am not sure that cur country’s authorities have done all they could to immortalise [sic] the memory of the victims. But this is something that we will do without fail, something that both the current authorities and the future authorities will do. I felt bound to give my support to the initiative proposed by Russian and American citizens to build a monument here to the victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York. This is not just because Russia, perhaps more than any other country, sympathises [sic] with you and understands you, but also because this monument will always be a testimony to our unity in the struggle against common threats.

This will be an impressive monument, but we should never forget that for all their impressive and grandiose nature, such monuments represent concrete individuals, people who will always live on, not only in stone, not only in monuments, but in our hearts.

Thank you for your attention.

The ten-story tear drop monument, which supposedly cost about $12 Million — not a cheap gift by any standards! — was created by Zurab Tsereteli, a Russian painter, sculptor and architect [3].  Tsereteli’s insight into human emotions shines through in his exquisite work, which I hope many Americans will take the time to visit and appreciate [4].  I know I will, as I plan on visiting it soon.  It stands in Harbor View Park, a two-acre public park situated at the end of a man-made peninsula. [5]

There are rumblings going on about moving the monument.  Why?  Probably because it’s of Russian origin!  Why can’t we look on this gesture from sculptor Tsereteli, President Putin and the Russian people as a gesture of friendship and remember the admonition, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.”

The greatest anniversary tribute and remembrance society can give to those lost during 9-11, including responders and others who were in the cleanup crews, is to resolve to live together as sensible human beings with compassion and consideration toward all with tolerance and charity to make the Planet into Heaven on Earth, rather than a living hell it’s obviously speeding toward.

Peace!
