On July 28th, LADO International College has organized a trip to New York for its students. The tour started at 7 o’clock in the morning from LADO DC center and took the students throughout New York City and returned by 11 o’clock in the evening. Although the trip started early and ended late, it was a moment of life that many students will remember for many years to come. The tour stopped by many historical places including World Trade Center Memorial, Times Squire and Rockefeller Center.
The World Trade Center Memorial was one of the significant places where students visited. The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 are inscribed in bronze on parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. Memorial designer Michael Arad explains that the design concept “allows us to place the names of those who died that day next to each other in a meaningful way, marking the names of family and friends together, as they had lived and died." The names on the Memorial are arranged in a way that reflects the lives of the individuals they represent: their relationships with other victims, the companies they worked for, and where they were on 9/11.
Although they spent all day on the road, students were happy to spend a day with each other, made new friends and, most of all, had fun all day!
