Gift from the people of Russia

I had never heard of this before receiving this email. Why didn’t the press report it?????? It is located in Bayonne , N.J. (right across the river from the Statue of Liberty
This is the "TEAR DROP" made and installed by the Russians to honor those who died in 9 11 and a statement against terrorism. It is very impressive. The tear drop is lined up with the Statue of Liberty .
Gift from the people of Russia ......."Monument to the struggle against world terrorism, artist Zurab Tesereteii" is an impressive memorial and statement against terrorism.The walkway is made of stones

Names of the persons killed on 9 11 are inscribed on the base. The base like the Vietnam Memorial wall. It was a cold and windy day but well worth the drive to see. It is down in the shipping yards across from "The Lady".

I was amazed when I saw this in a email..They say when you look through the tear drop you can see the Statue of what a effect it must be.
