Commemorating 11 September

Today is the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon in the US six years ago.

A memorial in Grosvenor Square in London lists the 67 citizens of the United Kingdom who lost their lives on that day.  The memorial consists of a pavilion set into a garden, facing the US embassy.  A piece of the World Trade Centre is buried beneath the pavilion.

Some of the cost of the memorial was met by companies who lost empoyees in the attack.
