Even if they were only lit one day of they year, it would have been so much more of an accurate tribute.
Good point. I would think that idea could always be retrofitted in at some later date.

It will probably have to be a few years. There is an enormous amount of construction going on all around, and underneath the site. Having to obtain the pass to go to the memorial is probably meant as a way to keep hoards of people from trying to be at the memorial all at once for the time being because there's already an extremely high amount of congestion everywhere you look. It's mind boggling just how much is going within and around that 16 acre site.

Someday I would like to come see the place, but I would rather wait until all of the construction is complete.

It's kinda sad that one needs to get a reservation to see that memorial. Memorials should be open to the public freely. Especially this one since you can see it only when standing directly in front of it or in one of the surrounding towers

Right now there's too much construction going on all around for it to be open to the public.

I dunno but couldn't they open it to the public for only a few hours a day? Maybe when the construction workers have a pause?

Too much people would wanted to take that chance and there will be chaos..With current system, everything is organised and controlled..Everything people have to do is take a free ticket..
