I am so shocked that this “Tear Drop” 9/11 memorial exists right across from NYC and yet we do not hear about it. This is a 100-foot tall monument given to the U.S. back in 2006 by the Russian people in memory of all those that lost their lives on 9/11. The breaking in the cracked facade forms the shape of the two towers. The giant suspended tear drop symbolizes all the tears the world had shed in response to this terrifying day. Absolutely beautiful. It is located in Bayonne, New Jersey, which is just on the other side of the water near the Statue of Liberty. It is a shame that such a beautiful memorial is given barely any attention and I think it should be shown every year around this time. Feel free to share this post to your walls!

if you live in south Jersey there’s these two cats at my work (Moorestown PetSmart) who have been here for almost half a year. They’re a bonded pair and one of them doesn’t have knees so he walks funny and I fear because of that and bc they’re bonded he won’t be adopted 😞 Charlie is the one without knees, and both cats are absolute sweethearts. I feel so bad that they’ve been here so long and I’m sure they need a home without other cats or dogs or kids so I can’t take them 😞 I really want them to find homes soon, please reblog!!
81 years ago today: Left side view of the German airship Zeppelin LZ 129 “Hindenburg” burning at Lakehurst, New Jersey, May 6, 1937. In this photo, the rear half of the ship is on fire but the ship is still above the ground; nose is pitched sharply upwards.
