  • New York prepares tribute to 9/11 victims 20 years on

    New York, Sep 10 (EFE/EPA).- The philosophy of Joe McKay, a retired firefighter who experienced first-hand the "apocalyptic" tragedy of the 9/11 attacks in New York, is to always do something nice for people."Do something nice for someone else every day, and never forget," he said, despite the health problems that he has carried since, trying to maintain the same optimism with which the city looks to the future while keeping memories alive.The city is preparing to commemorate Saturday the 20th anniversary of 9/11, with events and tributes led by the ceremony at Ground Zero, where, with limited access to relatives of victims and survivors, the names of the nearly 3,000 victims will be read.The square, where the 9/11 Museum and its famous Memorial are located today and is made up of two enclosures with waterfalls that fall into the void left by the Twin Towers, will then reopen to the public. At nightfall the usual "Tribute of Lights" will be held there, in which two huge beams of light rise toward the sky in the place previously occupied by skyscrapers, and as a novelty this year the main monuments of the city, including the Empire State Building.The city will deploy thousands of police officers, bomb detection units and trained dogs during the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with the aim of preventing a new attack, despite authorities saying there is no specific threat.
