It has been fifteen Septembers since that beautiful Tuesday morning on September 11th 2001. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History remembers the heroes of that day with a one of a kind display in the lobby.
“It is the largest single artifact on display in Texas. A full facade panel that was in place three stories below the impact zone of the North Tower” said Executive Director of Marketing and Communications of The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History Rebecca Rodriguez.
This thirty foot beam of twisted metal stand as a quiet reminder of the events of September 11, 2001 and a salute to the first responders who gave their lives so that other could live.
One of those survivors, Michael Hingson, has been blind from birth and will tell his amazing story of how he and his guide dog, Roselle, made it out alive. It’s a story that will leave you breathless and inspired.
“We finally said goodbye to each other because we had no idea what was going on and we thought we were about to take a 78 floor plunge to the street” said 9/11 survivor Michael Hingston.
The 9/11 memorial at The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is open all year. Tonight’s presentation will also include a concert by the Texas Boys Choir. Tickets are free, but reservations are required.
JD Ryan is Around Town.
