BEAM SIGNED BY OBAMA RAISED AT WORLD TRADE CENTER

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) A steel beam signed by President Barack Obama was lifted into place Thursday at the top of the 104-story One World Trade Center.

A crane atop the building raised the beam from the ground after dozens of people, including construction workers and police officers, added their own signatures near those of the president and first lady Michelle Obama.

It feels really good to be a part of it, said iron worker James Brady, part of the crew that lifted the beam.I feel very proud to be here. I feel very lucky to be here.

On June 14, the Obamas visited the skyscraper that's being built to replace the twin towers destroyed by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001. The white beam contains the words One World Trade Center painted in blue. Obama wrote in marker: We remember, ''We rebuild and We come back stronger!
