Leaders of the soon-to-open museum are portraying it as a monument to unity and resilience ahead of its dedication, saying that the struggles to build it and conflicts over its content would be trumped by its tribute to both loss and survival.
“It wasn’t about us. It wasn’t about the families. We were motivated by our loss, but we want to make sure the generations that follow us could interact and experience the remains of the towers,” 9/11 family member Anthony Gardner told CBS 2’s Lou Young.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday that the Sept. 11 museum describes how people across the world came together after the attacks.
