Publisher's Summary

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times joins Bob to talk about politics and other news. Next, after years of controversy and debate over how to commemorate the victims of 9/11, the National September 11 Memorial is opening at the site of the Twin Towers in New York on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Over 5,000 proposals from 63 nations were considered for the memorial and the one finally accepted was “Reflecting Absence” by New York architect Michael Arad and Californian landscape architect Peter Walker. Arad joins Bob to discuss the memorial which covers eight acres and includes two pools with 30-foot waterfalls that flow into the footprints of the towers, surrounded by a plaza of almost 400 oak trees. The names of the 2,982 victims are listed on parapets surrounding the pools.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Helena Marie Carnes-Jeffries. As the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 approaches, Carnes-Jeffries recalls her feelings at the time. A few days after the attacks, she attended an interfaith prayer vigil in Chicago. And now, even after a decade of war and increasing religious tensions, her faith tells her that peace remains the ultimate goal. [Broadcast Date: September 9, 2011]
