I went over to see the Russian Teardrop monument to those who lost their lives on 9/11 and to the fight against terrorism. There's a lot of hits if you google "Russian Teardrop", but I can't find the site that I found last night that had directions and a lot of info. But it's real, and well, well worth a trip. It's very easy to get to off the NJTP, and needs to be seen more. A LOT of the hits you get when you google it ask the question, "Why don't more people know about this?" Nobody seems to know the answer to that question. But I'm getting ahead of myself. What is it? It's a memorial that Russia gave to us as a beautiful gesture of sympathy and empathy for us after the awful events of 9/11, and it memorializes the people who lost their lives on that day -- it's got all their names inscribed on the base -- and the worldwide struggle against terrorism. To answer the question, "Why hasn't this gotten more publicity", appears to involve politics that I don't want to get into here...except to say that Putin was here for the groundbreaking and the dedication. I believe that was in '06. The keynote speaker at the dedication was President William Jefferson Clinton. You can read all about it on the web. And if you're anywhere near Bayonne, it's well, well, WELL worth the trip. And it lends itself very well to a combination visit to it, Liberty State Park, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty. That makes a wonderful day!
