Let Freedom Ring...Or At Least Begin

Now that the squabbling over who owns what has finally come to an end, construction workers have finally broken ground on the "Freedom Tower" - the planned 1,776-foot building that will symbolically replace the Twin Towers on the northern edge of Ground Zero.

The building is slated to be completed by 2010 and will be the tallest in all of North America. Per www.cnn.com, the building is to rise 1,360 feet, the height of the original twin towers. A spire will raise it to the height symbolic for the year of the American Revolution.

A memorial to the 2,973 September 11 victims and six people killed in a 1993 truck bombing will be located on the southern half of the site. It is expected to be completed in 2009, financed through private donations.
