Freedom

The Freedom Tower design has been made public.

The tower, designed to be a centerpiece of the rebuilding plan for the World Trade Center site, will rise 1,776 feet -- a nod to the year the United States declared its independence. The height stays as originally proposed a year ago by architect Daniel Libeskind, since designated the site's master planner.

And then... The New York Times has a slide-show.

It could be a memorial to anything--it's not a memorial to a specific event.
