    They should rebuild them as they were. The new buildings are not as tall, not as big, not as good in any way. We are sending the message that terrorists can alter the city forever. I find it odd that people say that this is "living in the past". Are they saying they would have been torn down by now anyway? If this is the case, we should tear down the Empire State Building, the Willis (Sears) Tower, and all other "old" buildings. In fact, we should tear down buildings after one year, so they don't get outdated. People say "we are America, we're strong, and we don't need the Twin Towers. We move forward, we don't look backwards. We'll show the world we can live without them." I hear "We're America, we're stupid, we don't care, we're afraid, and we'll show the terrorists they can win." This is like saying that... words fail me, but you get the idea. I can't find the right words for this. I don't know why we would not rebuild them. We can build the 5 new buildings, but we should rebuild the old buildings as well, just as they were. If we build new buildings, we can at least make them better. With just one building, it must be taller and bigger, not smaller. The second building is even worse, and the slanted roof means only 88 floors (I don't know the top floor hei...

If we build new buildings, we can at least make them better. With just one building, it must be taller and bigger, not smaller. The second building is even worse, and the slanted roof means only 88 floors (I don't know the top floor height, they try to lie so we don't know and think it's taller). It take more than just putting in 3 extra skyscrapers (none are as tall) to cancel this out. We want the Twin Towers, not shorter, smaller, modern looking towers more concerned about safety (the Twin Towers were safe, but nothing could survive a plane hit, the answer would have been better security, not stronger buildings) and being "environmentally friendly" and more accessible (like not being able to get in without two valid forms of identification and a reason)
    I also find it odd that they remove the Twin Towers from movies, tv, and stop adding it to various other things (like that they have LEGO every skyscraper besides the Twin Towers), as well as not listing them on lists of tall buildings. They may not want to "offend" victim's families, but this actually gives terrorists the satisfaction they wanted all along. They wanted this to happen. They should leave them in, and put them into new movies and TV, and put them into things where they would otherwise be, and list them with tall buildings. Removing them because they were destroyed is like taking your grandparents out of family photos because they're dead. They should list them, and just say destroyed at the side. They used to not be in the list, but were mentioned on the side. Later, they would not even be mentioned. I have seen lists of tallest buildings that don't mention them. And even when they are rebuilt, the fact that the second tower is significantly shorter means that something could come in between the first and second tower, thus getting an undeserved place on the world height records. I never saw the Twin Towers, and at this rate, I never will. I was exactly 5.5 years old, but I remember 9/11/01, as well as my parents telling me about skyscrapers, including this one. Why should it be removed permanently? It shouldn't. I have no idea what people mean by "living in the past", "moving forward", not "looking back", etc. Would they be the past if they were not destroyed? Of course not. Imagine if they were still here, if you saw them last time you were in New York City, if you asked someone who was just there if they saw them, if you planned on seeing them next time you went there, if they were just normal buildings, if you talked about this just like the Empire State Building or the Willis (Sears) Tower. What if they were in all movies that took place in New York City, if you didn't get that feeling overtime you saw a picture of them or even heard them mentioned.
    We need to rebuild the Twin Towers right where they were, just as good, if not better. I can't say more because I can't find the right words for this. (some things are hard to express). That's why I don't say what I really think about the people who are opposed to it being rebuilt so we can move on, or because we are strong, or so we don't look back, or because we don't live in the past. Because that, like so many things, are easy to think but hard to say. I just can't figure out what to say (I don't think humans are born with a natural ability to respond to stupid things).

    I'm from the uk but I still feel that they should rebuild the twins. Now that Bin Laden is dead al-queda daren't make another attempt to bring them down. They don't have the brains to do it. Anyways. Obama's got the right idea. He came over here a while back on the state visit and called for co-operation. In my opinion, if the UK and US worked together, we could build a stronger twin towers. If we rebuild them, they not only restore the skyline of New York City, but also completes the American Coat of Arms that says "we shall never be beaten"! So you try your best! Don't let the Freedom Towers be built. Go out and get those towers rebuilt!

    personally i dont think they should build them as HIGH as they were. i also think that if they were to rebuild them HIGH up or a little lower they should have been built STRONGER.because for buildings that high it just is a target that says HIT ME TERROISTS! and the security should have been much much better because apparently there were bombs set to help them go down quicker. in all sense they could build them again but a little smaller and with a memorial out front. but if u dont put anything its just a peice of a open empty memory of something awful when u could build something new and bring a new beginning to new york city and america. (: <3 well RIP twin towers and the people who died. also this is just my opinion. ;) i also think it matters. how also i feel in a way bush pushed them to do it a little but also they did it to put fear in the eyes of americans but we will not be pushed around! AMERICA IS STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL and so were those towers. we need them back but stronger just like us in the usa. So let the towers stand for what us americans are.... STRONG&FREE;! (:

    Rebuild the Twin Towers! The New Twins desgin is amazing, a lot better than the "Freedom" Tower. Nobody wants that hideous site, a symbol of corrupt politics and Bush's terrible reign of the US for 8 years. Rebuild the Twin Towers, bigger, stronger, better than ever before! bushs terrible reign 8 years rebuild twin towers bigger stronger

    There is nothing better than the Gardner/ Belton Twin Towers II. The freedom tower, in laymans terms, SUCKS! Over 70 percent of New Yorkers want our iconic skyline restored, and the bureacrats at LMDC will do anything to ignore us, including wasting millions upon millions of dollars in a failure!

    I will be in New York ( July 19 thru 26 ) I want to see ground Zero --almost 7 years ago those buildings came down on the first attack on U.S. territory in history -- I think a memorial would be fitting
