lie ahead or how all of our lives would be changed forever. in that eight years' time, there has been a lot changed and one year ago, one of the big changes was the official dedication of the opponent pentagon memorial. jim lasek is the president of the fund and he lost his brother eight years ago. good morning. i don't enjoy seeing out this day. i hate that that is what brings us together. it always gives such a sense of hope to see your resolve every year. >> thank you. it is all about remember is the people that died here and i think having the memorial here is such a big part of remembering and not forgetting what happened that day. >> when you remember david, what is your best memory? >> his sense of huge our and the way we used to joke around growing up and he was such a great dad, a great friend, a good brother. he was just a good guy. you have worked so hard to make this memorial a reality and here we are one year later. how do you think that it's been
received and how has it helped victims' family members heal. >> i think it has been received very well. i know we took a tour with the falconberg family, the mily that died on the plane. they came from colorado. this were just very touched. it was very emotional for them and i know ere is a lot of people we have taken on tours, school groups an effect comes away with the same feeling. it is just a very special place arks place of solace, a place of peace, a place of healing which is what the families wanted. >> i have been saying all morning long that the memorial is open 24 hours. and while you need to come see it, obviously, come see it when the sun is not up because to see the benches lit up emanates something different yen my wife and i were here for the first time last year right before it opened and we were here at twilight. it was a special place to be

it is hard to raise money for maintenance but we're determined to did that and we're determined to focus on the next phase of what the pentagon memorial fund is all about which might be education and outreach so we're starting to folkous those types of things. >> in terms of young kids that don't know life before september 11th, what do you hope that they understand when they come and visit this special place. >> i would hope that they would come an think about what -- how lucky we are in this country and the freedoms we enjoy and how quickly that can all change like it did on september 11th. you and i remember it and such a horrible feeling in our guts when we saw that. a lot of those kids, you are now getting generation that weren't born or were born after 9-11 so you want to make sure they remember the great things about our country and how fragile it is sometimes. >> jim being you are one of the great things about our country. thank you so much for coming out this morning. >> thank you. >> reporter: the official care monday only open to family members of the victims.
