It’s pesky question time. The first columns for the new skyscraper replacement for the World Trade Center have been placed. They’re calling the building the Freedom Tower.
What does the Freedom Tower have to do with freedom, though? Why call it the Freedom Tower?
When the World Trade Center was attacked, our freedom wasn’t under attack. A building was under attack. It was our own government that attacked our freedom.
It was our own government that shut down the Statue of Liberty, just across the water from the new Freedom Tower. How can we build a Freedom Tower when the Statue of Liberty is still closed to the public?
