  • 1. Gift From the People of Russia to USA "MONUMENT TO THE STRUGGLE AGAINST WORLD TERRORISM" Zurab Tesereteii, artist Vladimir Putin, President Russia
  • 2. Russian Tribute to USA Artist Zurab Tesereteii I had never heard of this before receiving an e-mail.   Why the  press didn’t report it? This is the "TEAR DROP" made and installed by the Russians to honor those who died in 9 11 and a statement against terrorism. It is very impressive. The tear drop is lined up with the Statue of Liberty
  • 3. September 11th , 2006 2:30 pm The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, New Jersey The Unveiling of a New World Monument Remembering the Victims of September 11th and the 1993 World Trade Center Bombings A Gift from the People of Russia Vladimir Putin, President (Northeast Corner of Bayonne Peninsula at the former Military Ocean Terminal) Time cures everything, but there are things we cannot and must not forget. Standing more than 100 feet tall, “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” honors victims of 9/11 and the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and serves as a symbol of solidarity in the fight against world terrorism. Created by Russian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, the memorial was a gift from the Russian people. Dedicated on September 11, 2006, it stands in direct view of the Statue of Liberty and the former World Trade Center.
  • 4. THE MEMORIAL AT HARBOR VIEW PARK Bayonne, New Jersey
  • 5. Standing at 100 feet tall and weighing 175 tons, the monument was shipped from Russia to the United States in six sections — weighing between 28 and 63 tons each — and assembled by a group of Russian artisans. Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli spent several months in the U.S. overseeing construction of the memorial.

  • 16. “ To the Struggle Against World Terrorism,” was conceived as the events of 9/11 unfolded and Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli walked the streets of Moscow. Struck by the outpouring of grief he observed, a memorial with an image of a tear formed in his mind. Shortly after the attacks, Tsereteli visited ground zero and looked to New Jersey’s waterfront for an appropriate site for a monument honoring victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. Zurab Tsereteli is one of Russia’s most prominent and prolific artists. A sculptor, designer and architect, he captures significant historical events in large-scale sculptures and monuments on view in museums and public spaces throughout Russia, Europe, Israel, Uruguay and the United States. Other noted works by the artist include the “Victory” monument at the Moscow War Memorial, “Peter the Great” in downtown Moscow and “Good Defeats Evil” a sculpture created from scrapped American and Soviet missiles on the grounds of the United Nations in New York.
  • 17. The nickel-plated teardrop contained within the monument weighs four tons and measures approximately 40 feet high.
  • 18. THE MEMORIAL AT HARBOR VIEW PARK Bayonne, New Jersey A gift from Tsereteli and the Russian people, the memorial is made of steel sheathed in bronze. Standing 100 feet high, its center contains a jagged tear. In it, hangs a 40-foot stainless steel teardrop, representing sadness and grief over the loss of life, but also hope for a future free from terror. Etched in ngranite on an 11-sided base are the names of the nearly 3,000 killed in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

  • 20. You do not have to forward, you are not going to have bad luck if you delete but I do ask that YOU Pray for our Men and Women in Uniform…
  • 21. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.      2 Chronicles 7:14
