At the entrance to the NATO headquarters in Belgium, there are two monuments. One, a piece of the Berlin Wall. Designed to keep people in and ideas out (...) The other monument is a twisted steel beam from the North Tower of the World Trade Centre. A memorial to the ordinary people going about their business on an ordinary day when the unthinkable happened. A memorial to the 2,977 people who lost their lives on 9/11. A reminder of how all NATO Allies stood with the United States in its hour of need. One monument is a symbol of freedom. The other a symbol of solidarity. Both are symbols of NATO. Who we are and what we stand for. -- Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: good for Europe and good for America, 3 April 2019Posted by Isabelle le 2019-04-28
