I dont think it would be a good idea to rebuild the WTC because they would just knock it down again. The Muslims believers resent us and think were heathens because we defy the natural order of things. I think people should not be afraid to build again, and we should not build any higher than someone can climb down in a 5 minutes. Because it took too long for people to descend, is why they were killed. They should consider that before rebuilding any building. The elemental time of escape should be a requirement for any building. < I would definitely NOT want to work in such a High rise.> It should be a monumental reminder to never mock G*D. Because that is what those of the Muslim/ Islam faith thought we were doing... thumbing our finger to G*D when it was built. < they think we did.> Those Arabic Muslims "felt" we mocked G*D and built this Tower of Babel (as they still see it.).We should learn from our mistakes, but will we? I think not if you try and rebuild and in the same venue and area. One has to be a fool not to learn something from all those deaths. Each building is a microcosm to a disaster if it is not built with people in mind, and worst if their safety is not measured as a prerequisite against the ego of the achitector, too. So whatever you do, I pray you take into account all those things plus. For by your acknowledgement, you will render someone incapacitated with fear, that they may "do it again"! So be simple, safe and less floors when you rebuild the WTC.
