On top of the base, which is supposed to represent the Pentagon, there is a granite column with three sides. Each side has the name of a place that was attacked on Sept. 11 along with a quote of remembrance. On top of the column is a two foot piece of what looks like an I-beam with a large nail sticking out of it.&nbsp;<br /> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 16:27:46 +0000 Wilson Sayre 20386 at http://wlrn.org North Campus Of Miami-Dade College Unveils 9/11 Memorial Nation Pauses To Mark Sept. 11 Attacks http://wlrn.org/post/nation-pauses-mark-sept-11-attacks It was just after 8:45 a.m. ET on Sept. 11, 2001, when the first jet struck the World Trade Center in New York City and the worst terrorist attack in the nation's history began.
