The ROS memorial promotes peace in all corners of the earth; honoring the many walks of life and cultures represented by the World Trade Center.
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 12 Release of Souls The sculpture is symbolic of the Twin Towers that vaporized to nothing. Close your eyes and visualize the release of three thousand souls, all at once breaking free, filling the sky with a brilliance of color and resolution. The Surviving WTC Steel stands as testament to all heroes of that infamous morning. The names of 343 Fire Fighters, 72 Port Authority/Police Officers, 125 Military members, EMS and K-9 rescue dogs are engraved on the touring memorial. Many lost their own lives in the quest to save others. We will never forget their laughter, color and light that brightened our lives. The Pentagon foundation represents the tragic events in Washington and the Pennsylvania “keystone” cutout represents those killed aboard flight 93.

Feb 2, 2005, Slide 14 Gear Up A recent addition to the WORLD MEMORIAL cause is the GEAR-UP program, founded by decorated Ground Zero Firefighter Vincent Forras. In addition to working the WTC tragedy, Mr. Forras and hundreds of fellow “brothers” have become ill due to the GZ toxins. Several friends have since perish in the three years following 9/11. Today, Vinny carries on the life saving mission in the name of his friends, and all those taken from us September 11, by offering to help fire fighters and provide safety education to children.
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 15 Gear Up Collection of Equipment: The United States Fire-fighting industry saves lives and property by constant improvement of equipment and fire training, required at all levels due to government regulations. Thus, there is a natural surplus of equipment available for donation from manufacturers and “obsolete” storage.
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 16 Gear Up
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 17 Gear Up At present GEAR UP has donated several trucks and tons of equipment to Ecuador. Last September, WORLD MEMORIAL, Air Ambassador, New Freedom Partners and Gear Up have cooperated together to provide a donated modular ambulance to the impoverished town of La Mission, Baja, Mexico. And most recently those efforts have yielded a Class-A fire truck to the tsunami victims of Phuket, Thailand. We are currently waiting for airlift/sealift of the donated items.

Feb 2, 2005, Slide 26 Survivor’s Corner
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 27 Survivor’s Corner HOPE The 19-foot polished-bronze sculpture rises out the Memorial Fountain on a 3-foot pedestal recycled from WTC materials. This centerpiece balances the starkness of the 140' surviving steel wall; presenting “Hope” for future generations. Commissioned by international artist Robert Landry.
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 28 Survivor’s Corner Honor Roll Three thousand names are etched on two blue- tinted glass walls facing the steel symbol of WTC. A white canopy, modeled after an airfoil, floats over the hallowed ground to protect the Names, Museum entrance and guests from the elements. By incorporating the skyscraper glass element, hundreds of flowers and thirty rows of names are visible on both sides. As we descend into the 9-11 Museum, we continue to see the names (in reverse). Shadows of people touching the names and the 140' Survivors Corner intensify this experience.
Feb 2, 2005, Slide 29 Survivor’s Corner The Memorial Level elevates the southern footprint two levels (43 feet) above an immaculate national Park, dotted with large trees, benches and meandering walkways. In beauty and simplicity, 3,025 names are etched on blue-tinted glass. The retreat for 9-11 Families overlooks this tribute for their loved ones and a 160-foot signature piece of WTC beams that stood in defiance to this terrorist act. Behind the glass wall, we descend within this sacred footprint to the Visitors Center. With multimedia tributes and 50 exhibits planned, the Center celebrates the 400-year history of Manhattan, American Spirit, and the World Trade Center prior to that infamous morning of 11 September. The Sealed Ashes are presented in a cylindrical sanctuary room, focusing attention upward through a dome skylight to the Memorial Fountains above. Going one step further, the WORLD MEMORIAL also represents our journey post Appealing to our youth, the Education Center invites awareness, tolerance and hope.
