In a record-breaking sale, a Chinese insurance giant is buying New York City’s iconic Waldorf-Astoria hotel for nearly $2 billion. The purchase comes as China remains the leading foreign buyer of US properties, and what some experts call the largest transfer of wealth in history, with centuries of accumulated American capital being scooped up by Chinese investors. RT’s Marina Portnaya takes a closer look.

Remarks by the President at 9/11 Memorial

The Pentagon

9:45 A.M. EDT

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good morning. Scripture tells us, “We count as blessed those who have persevered.”

Secretary Hagel, General Dempsey, members of our Armed Forces, and, most of all, the survivors of that September day and the families of those we lost –- Michelle and I are humbled to be with you once again.

It has now been 13 years. Thirteen years since the peace of an American morning was broken. Thirteen years since nearly 3,000 beautiful lives were taken from us, including 125 men and women serving here at the Pentagon. Thirteen years of moments they would have shared with us. Thirteen years of memories they would have made.

Here, once more, we pray for the souls of those we remember, for you, their families, who love them forever, and for a nation that has been inspired by your example — your determination to carry on, your resolve to live lives worthy of their memories.

As Americans, we draw strength from you. For your love is the ultimate rebuke to the hatred of those who attacked us that bright, blue morning. They sought to do more than bring down buildings or murder our people. They sought to break our spirit and to prove to the world that their power to destroy was greater than our power to persevere and to build. But you, and America, proved them wrong.

America endures in the strength of your families who, through your anguish, kept living. You have kept alive a love that no act of terror can ever extinguish. You, their sons and daughters, are growing into extraordinary young men and women they knew you could be. By your shining example, your families have turned this day into something that those who attacked us could never abide, and that is a tribute of hope over fear, and love over hate.

America endures in the tenacity of our survivors. After grievous wounds, you learned to walk again and stand again. After terrible burns, you smiled once more. For you, for our nation, these have been difficult years. But by your presence here today, in the lives of service that you have led, you embody the truth that no matter what comes our way, America will always come out stronger.

America endures in the dedication of those who keep us safe. The firefighter, the officer, the EMT who carries the memory of a fallen partner as they report to work each and every day, prepared to make the same sacrifice for us all. Because of these men and women, Americans now work in a gleaming Freedom Tower. We visit our great cities, we fill our stadiums and cheer for our teams. We carry on, because, as Americans, we do not give in to fear — ever.

America endures in the courage of the men and women who serve under our flag. Over more than a decade of war, this 9/11 Generation has answered our country’s call, and three months from now, our combat mission in Afghanistan will come to an end. Today, we honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice these 13 years, more than 6,800 American patriots. And we give thanks to those who serve in harm’s way to keep our country safe and meet the threats of our time.

America endures in that perennial optimism that defines us as a people. Beginning tomorrow, there will be teenagers –- young adults –- who were born after 9/11. It’s remarkable. And while these young Americans did not know the horrors of that day, their lives have been shaped by all the days since — a time that has brought us pain, but also taught us endurance and strength; a time of rebuilding, of resilience, and of renewal. What gives us hope –- what gives me hope -– is that it is these young Americans who will shape all the days to come.

Thirteen years after small and hateful minds conspired to break us, America stands tall and America stands proud. And guided by the values that sustain us, we will only grow stronger. Generations from now, Americans will still fill our parks, our stadiums, our cities. Generations from now, Americans will still build towers that reach toward the heavens; still serve in embassies that stand for freedom around the world; still wear the uniform and give meaning to those words written two centuries ago: Land of the free. Home of the Brave. Generations from now, no matter the trial, no matter the challenge, America will always be America.

“We count as blessed those who have persevered.”

May God bless your families, who continue to inspire us all. May God bless our Armed Forces and all who serve to keep us safe. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.
END

Memorial Museum Dedication Ceremony 9/11. We Remember

President Obama, Others Dedicate 9/11 Museum In Solemn Ceremony

Obama at 9/11 Museum: Terrorism Can’t Break Us

President Barack Obama, dignitaries, Sept. 11 survivors, rescuers and victims’ relatives marked the opening of the 9/11 museum in a solemn dedication ceremony on Thursday.

Obama called the National September 11 Memorial Museum as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism and helping others that followed the attacks.

“It’s an honor to join in your memories, to recall and to reflect, but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11 — love, compassion, sacrifice — and to enshrine it forever in the heart of our nation,” he told an audience of victims’ relatives, survivors, and rescuers at the ground zero museum’s dedication ceremony.

“Like the great wall and bedrock that embrace us today, nothing can ever break us. Nothing can change who we are as Americans.”

The president praised the men and women who helped save lives in the attack, including those who gave their lives in the effort.

“Those we lost live on in us,” Obama said. “In the families who love them still, the friends who remember them always and in a nation that will honor them now and forever.”

Former mayor Michael Bloomberg called the museum “a place we come to remember those who died and to honor acts of courage and compassion.”

“We are here today to help dedicate a great museum, one that rises out of the bedrock of our city, our history and our hearts,” Bloomberg said before introducing Obama at the dedication ceremony. “In the years to come, the 9/11 memorial museum will take its place alongside the fields of Gettysburg, the waters of Pearl Harbor and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial as a sacred marker of our past and as a solemn gathering place.”

The museum, which commemorates the 2001 terrorist attack as well as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, opens to the public on May 21.

Before the ceremony, Obama walked quietly through an expansive hall with Bloomberg.First lady Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton following behind them.

Reflections from dignitaries, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, were interspersed with the voices of everyday people caught up in Sept. 11.

Retired Fire Department Lt. Mickey Cross described being trapped for hours in the wreckage of the north tower and then joining the recovery effort after being rescued.

“There was a real sense of caring for each other,” he said.

Kayla Bergeron remembered walking down 68 flights of stairs in the north tower, amid confusion and fear that there was no way out. Her final steps to safety were on an outdoor stairway, now in the museum as the “survivors’ stairs.”

“Today, when I think about those stairs, what they represent to me is resiliency,” she said.

Thirteen years after the Twin Towers fell, the raw emotion is still palpable among those who lived through it.

“It was like this dream you thought you were going to wake up from,” Midtown resident Peter Bricken said.

“It’s like being in a sacred place, like a tomb,” Washington Heights resident Roman Kopinads said. “So many people lost their lives.”

9/11 Memorial Museum Dedication Ceremony

Published on May 15, 2014

The brand new Sept. 11 museum opened Thursday, May 15th, 2014 and was praised as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism and helpfulness that followed the attacks. This is a video slide show of the dedication ceremony.

The museum and memorial plaza above, which opened in 2011, were built for $700 million in donations and tax dollars.

By turns chilling and heartbreaking, the ground zero museum leads people on an unsettling journey through the terrorist attacks, with forays into their lead up and legacy.

The sights and sounds are all-encompassing and at times, overwhelming.

“Walking through this museum can be difficult at times, but it is impossible to leave without feeling inspired,” Bloomberg said Thursday.

There are scenes of horror, including videos of the skyscrapers collapsing and people falling from them. But there also are symbols of heroism, ranging from damaged fire trucks to the wristwatch of one of the airline passengers who confronted the hijackers.

Visitors start in an airy pavilion where the rusted tops of two of the World Trade Center’s trident-shaped columns shoot upward. From there, museumgoers descend stairs and ramps, passing through a dark corridor filled with the voices of people remembering the day and past the battered “survivors’ staircase” that hundreds used to escape the burning towers.

At the base level, 70 feet below ground, amid remnants of the skyscrapers’ foundations, there are such artifacts as a mangled piece of the antenna from atop the trade center and a fire truck with its cab shorn off.

Then, galleries plunge visitors into the chaos of Sept. 11: fragments of planes, a set of keys to the trade center, a teddy bear left at the impromptu memorials that arose after the attacks, the dust-covered shoes of those who fled the skyscrapers’ collapse, emergency radio transmissions and office workers calling loved ones, even a recording of an astronaut solemnly describing the smoke plume from the International Space Station.

Sprinkled in are snippets about the 19 hijackers, including photos of them on an inconspicuous panel.

The unidentified human remains of more than 1,000 people will also be housed in an underground repository within the museum.

But several families gathered outside the memorial gates Wednesday night to say their relatives should not be buried inside a museum that costs $24 to enter.

“We want those remains up on the plaza, a nice memorial where they can continue DNA testing. They don’t belong in an admission charging museum,” said Jim Riches, whose firefighter son was killed in the attack.

Other victims’ families see it as a fitting resting place.

After Thursday’s dedication, the museum will be open for six days around-the-clock to Sept. 11 survivors, victims’ relatives, first responders and lower Manhattan residents.

When the museum opens to the public May 21, the $24 admission will be waived for all visitors, but advance reservations are required.

There will be no admission charge for relatives of Sept. 11 victims or for rescue and recovery workers. Children age 6 and younger will get in free. Admission will be free for everyone on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The museum’s regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Officials say advanced reservations for tickets can be booked at 911memorial.org.
