The stone tribute tells a story. Engraved facts of the events which occurred that day. With symbolic pedestals which are made to look like the mammoth buildings that once filled  the New York sky line. 

The memorial comes with a real artifact. A piece of steal that came out of the twins towers.

It features three different designs aspects.  one for each of the three locations that suffered losses that day.  like the pentagon  and the field in Shansksville Pennsylvania. Cairnduff says many Fenton firefighters and community members volunteered in the days following the attack.

"Those responders that were all down there...risked their lives and are still paying for it today." said Robert Cairnduff

He says it honors everyone that lived and died. 

"We just hope that this memorial site is a good reelection. People can remember this day for a long time." said Robert Cairnduff
